With worldwide sales of over 56 million of her novels, Victoria Holt is one of the most popular romantic suspense novelists of all time. Anyone who enjoyed her novel, The Shadow of the Lynx, will be eager to devour another of her unforgettable tales.

Enamored by the handsome and arrogant Charles-Auguste, a wealthy French aristocrat, 18-year-old Minella is drawn into a complicated world of danger, betrayal, and murder. Denying her own suspicion that he has murdered his wife, she struggles with her fascination for the seductive and mysterious count. Against the backdrop of the incipient French Revolution, Minella's life becomes a series of adventures that all lead to an exciting and unexpected climax. Davina Porter's passionate narration transports readers back to a time when romance was a prerequisite to sex and family. Reminiscent of Charles Dickens' Tale of Two Cities, the historic setting and the powerful heroine captivate any reader who enjoys a book that is impossible to put down.

    " I am on a Victoria Holt reading binge. The books are starting to blur together... I don't remember if I would rather rate this three stars but compared to vintage harlequins it is a much better read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deborah Sullivan | 11/13/2013

    " Contrived story with little motivation for the heroine to choose the hero. Seemed to be written by a precocious teenager, from the use of stilted dialogue. "

    " Eh. I wouldn't have liked this book at all if it were not for the fact that I love Historical Fiction so much. This was set during the very beginning of the French Revolution so that was interesting. "
