'Her mother was a legendary screen goddess who gave up her career to follow the man she loved. Her father was president of a country at the mercy of powerful forces determined to overthrow him. But Noella de Bartez, still guilty over a long-ago sin, no longer feels she has a rightful place in the family dynasty. Wild and wilful, she rejects the land of her birth for the temptations of Paris and London. There, her uncanny likeness to her late mother opens doors to high society, but also entraps her in a decadence capable of destroying all her father has worked for.
'Then a single shattering event changes everything and Noella must find the courage to become a woman who will honor the family name and do her duty to her country in its darkest hours.' (Publication summary)
