Long's trilogy about the three orphaned daughters of a murdered government official continues in this second steamy Regency-era novel. Original.
When a letter hidden by her guardian hints that she might have a sister in England, orphaned French ballerina Sylvie Lamoureux abruptly leaves Paris and heads across the channel to find her sibling. But an admirer is in hot pursuit, and when Sylvie evades him by jumping into a waiting coach, she lands in the arms of one of the most attractive and infamous men in London, impresario Tom Shaughnessey, owner of the notorious White Lily Theatre. The stage is then set for a passionate relationship that amounts to more than either had expected. Sharply drawn secondary characters, including a persistent, ruthless suitor, and fascinating theatrical detail add depth to a story that is clever, well crafted, and pure pleasure to read. The second in Long's trilogy about the orphaned daughters of an accused murderess (after Beauty and the Spy). The author lives in San Francisco.
