Intrigue and scandal stalk the salons of Fontainebleau in Katy Moran's latest historical romance set in 19th-century France, England and Russia.
'It's pretty hard to pull off a good Georgette Heyer homage, but Moran makes it look easy' i NewsIn a Bridgerton-style Regency world, three people are caught in a web of passion and deceit. Fontainebleau in 1825 is a glittering international court, rich with intrigue, passion and simmering violence. Lieutenant Colonel Kit Helford must navigate these treacherous waters to deliver the beautiful, self-destructive Princess Royal to her prospective husband. Kit's childhood friend, Clemency Arwenack, is tasked with safeguarding her royal mistress's reputation as the princess awaits a marriage she is dreading. But both have secrets they will hide at all costs. Kit is on the run - from a man shot and left for dead back in London and a lifetime of scandal that includes a liaison with the princess herself. He will do anything to salvage his family's reputation. Clemency, meanwhile, conducts a perilous trade in lies and blackmail as she seeks to destroy the princess, not protect her. With the princess's life under threat, Kit and Clemency are pitted against each other, even as a dangerous attraction grows between them. The past hunts them both, remorselessly, relentlessly, and neither can escape it for long. 'Passionate, smart and action-packed' Sarah Hughes, Guardian 'Lush, dark, utterly real and achingly romantic' Ruth Ware
