“A jolly good read for the summer holidays” — Weekend Australian book reviews
“It is the golden age of French aristocratic life in the glittering court of Louis XV. Beneath the posturing and hedonism lies a seething hotbed of intrigue, deceit, and treachery… characters live and breathe the atmosphere of the time; they are captivating, from the primary players, right down to the smaller, but no less important characters. Ultimately, this is a passionate romance, with added action and adventure, derring-do, and some narrow escapes! I loved it.” — Fiona Ingram: 5 STARS, a Readers’ Favorite International Book Award Medalist
