Publisher's Summary

It was a time of discovery and decadence, when life became a gamble and the gold that poured endlessly into the port of Sevilla devalued money, marriage, and love itself. In the midst of these treacherous times, Juan Tenorio is born and then abandoned in the barn of a convent. Raised secretly by the nuns, he learns to love and worship all women and wants nothing more than to be a priest, until he falls in love with one of the sisters. When their affair is discovered, Juan leaves the Church forever. He is soon recruited to be a spy by the powerful Marquis de la Mota, who teaches him to become the world's greatest libertine and seducer of women. But when he crosses swords with the most powerful man in the Empire, Don Juan must escape the murderous fury of the Inquisitor, who battles all forms of debauchery, deviance, and heresy. It is after knowing countless women that he is convinced by the Marquis to keep a diary, and it is here within its pages that Don Juan reveals his greatest adventures and the Arts of Passion he mastered. But what finally compels him to confess everything and risk losing his life, livelihood, and honor is the most perilous adventure of all: the irresistible fall into the madness of love with the only woman who could ever make him forget all others.

slow

I got sooooo tired of the development of this character - it jumped around a lot and there seemed to be a lot of gratuitous experiences that were recorded. the accent was a little annoying and Scott Brick is one of my favorites, actually it was because he was reading that I ended up getting this.
anyway, this could have been a much shorter book so if you are into descriptive overload then you will enjoy this - otherwise if you miss a section, dont rewind - it is not worth it!
