Beasts by Joyce Carol Oates

The story opens with a woman in her 40's in a museum in Paris discovering a piece of art she thought was long ago destroyed in a fire. It then goes back to when this woman was in college, her love for one of her professors, and what happened when she was taken to be an "intern" for the professor and his wife. Very dark, sexual, and Gothic. Ok story, but glad I got it from the library and didn't buy it. 4 stars
