A sweeping historical novel from the Queen of Romance, originally published in 1959 and now available for the first time in eBook.
Seduction, betrayal, rapture.
Esmond, Earl of Mornbury and the handsomest man in all England, had renounced his elegantly reckless lifestyle - only to be shattered by a cruel tragedy. Grief-stricken, he resumed his dissolute living and fought a deadly duel before retreating to a monastery to suffer alone.
But now Queen Anne urges marriage upon him, and Esmond's thoughts turn to the lovely Magda, whom he has seen just once, but who captured his interest and desire. The preparations for the match are put in place. But a shocking discovery awaits Esmond on his wedding day... a revelation that will put love to the ultimate test.
He is England's most charming rogue - she is treachery's pawn. They thought nothing could stand between them - but will her terrible betrayal destroy their love?
