The Flames of a Potemkin Kingdom—Wolfgang Sinclair, a devout and extravagant global businessman with a maritime private-security firm, buys the French island of Saint Pierre after a devastating fire causes total evacuation. Egotistical colonization plans ensue—in an effort to create a utopia shaped in his image, literally.

Taking advantage of the gloomy economy, he hatches a bold artificial-insemination plan, and mothers representing the globe are amassed to birth Sinclair’s children, much to the suspicion of world leaders. Dabbling in eugenics and pedagogy, he plans out every aspect of life for the future leaders of the island kingdom.

And then there is Amelia Potvin, a timid woman who appreciates the status quo, but becomes centrally entrenched in the unfolding of Wolfgang’s bold plan—in a way she could have never anticipated or wanted.
