The Girl Behind the Fan
Hidden Women: 2
By Stella Knightley
Two captivating stories about the sacrifices we make for love . . . The second novel in the HIDDEN WOMEN trilogy is set in the world of the nineteenth-century Parisian courtesans.
Hurt and confused by the sudden end of her strange love affair with Venetian millionaire Marco Donato, Sarah Thomson takes her bruised heart to Paris, where she tries to forget her yearning for Marco by throwing herself into a new project: a study of the life of notorious nineteenth-century courtesan, Augustine Levert, whose sensual charms parted many a man from his fortune.
It is while she is in France that Sarah meets her ex-boyfriend Steven, who is hoping for a reconciliation. They rekindle their psychologically and sexually tortured relationship, but when her life begins to parallel Augustine's story, Sarah realises she will never erase Marco from her heart.
Faced with a choice between safety and overwhelming passion, will both women make the right decision?
Stella Knightley is the author of twenty-six novels published under other names. THE GIRL BEHIND THE FAN is the second of three books in the Hidden Women series after THE GIRL BEHIND THE MASK. The series blends the daring stories of historical women of note with an erotically-charged contemporary love affair which will delight the fans of Fifty Shades. Stella grew up in the west of England and now lives in London.
