This is the story of love fought over and what happens when a guy with a really bad temper loses in this love war. But the more you read, the more you realize that both men are more than little 'temperamental".
Apparently everyone can be the bad guy in this war.
A quick, intense read set in the 1800's with an ending that was quite unexpected. An interesting story, but I stayed outside of the characters - I was never able to become too invested in them.

Hell has a new master
In the late 1800s, handsome, wealthy New Englander, Magnus Blackwell, is the envy of all.
Magnus meets Jacob O Conner—a Harvard student from the working class—an
unlikely friendship is forged. But their close bond is soon challenged
by a captivating woman; a woman Magnus wants, but Jacob gets.
Magnus seeks solace in a trip to New Orleans. After a chance meeting
with Oscar Wilde, he becomes immersed in a world of depravity and
brutality, inevitably becoming the inspiration for Dorian Gray. Armed
with the forbidden magic of voodoo, he sets his sights on winning back
the woman Jacob stole from him.
Amid the trappings of Victorian
society, two men, bent on revenge, will lay the foundation for a curse
that will forever alter their destinies.
