A captivating love story from the 100-million-copy bestselling Queen of Romance, first published in 1928, and available now for the first time in eBook.
After her aunt's death, Thea gladly gives up her dreary job in the suburbs
to travel to the island of Biscany. She is sure she will be looked after there
by handsome Bevil Royce, with whom she had had such as passionate
love affair during his stay in London.
But the pretty but penniless little typist had been merely a temporary whim
of the worldly Bevil - and now he is engaged to the chic daughter of a wealthy
and influential baronet.
Then, through a strange act of fate, Thea finds herself under the protection of
the new Governor of the Island. Charles Fettermore is a deeply embittered man
who has his own reasons for wanting revenge on Bevil Royce. As she becomes
the focus of a deadly rivalry between the two men, Thea realises that she will
have to make a vital choice...
