Olivia Thorne was pretty, penniless and unmarried – and likely to stay that
way. Because the only man who had ever made her heart beat faster was
also penniless; a charming rogue of an Englishman named Lucian who
played the piano and acted the gentleman in public, but was a rebel at heart.
Against the colourful backdrop of nineteenth-century Italy, honeycombed with
revolutionaries and patriots, this spellbinding novel unfolds the tale of lovers
and villains – and of a woman who knew what she wanted and would stop at
nothing to achieve it.
