~ Don Juan - The BonVivan who loves me ;)

 In a time of discovery and decadence, when the gold that poured endlessly into the port of Sevilla devalued money, marriage, and love itself, young Juan Tenorio was abandoned and raised by nuns. 

He grew up loving and worshipping all women, but a clandestine affair with one of the sisters forces him to leave the Church— and his plans for the priesthood forever. 

Juan becomes a spy, as well as the world’s greatest libertine.

But far from the heartless seducer that legend recounts, he seeks liberation and redemption as much as personal pleasure and gratification. 

He begins to keep a diary of his greatest adventures and the arts of passion he has mastered.

The most dangerous adventure of all: the irresistible fall
into the madness of love with the only woman who could ever make him forget all others — finally compels him to confess everything.
