AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'1740s France and England. Abandoned to fend for herself at the court of Versailles, Antonia turns to her distant cousin, the all-powerful Duke of Roxton, to help her escape the attentions of a lecherous nobleman. Roxton is an unlikely savior—arrogant, promiscuous, and sinister. Antonia's unquestioning belief in him may just be his salvation, and her undoing. This award-winning historical pays homage to Georgette Heyer's These Old Shades.' (Publication summary)

Notes

  • Republication of The Dangerous Game, substantially expanded (by some 25,000 words)
  • On her website, Brant acknowledges a debt to Georgette Heyer's These Old Shades (1926), which follows a strongly similar plot.
