Lissette, Duchesse of Meret, is the niece of the King of France. She is engaged to the
Baron of Normandy and is in love with him, despite the fact that her father essentially
sold her to him. She has not seen him in several years and has been confined to a strict
school where she is isolated, although protected, from the chaos brewing from the
upcoming revolution. When her father sends for her, she hopes that the marriage she
has been awaiting for so long is finally to take place.

Girard, Baron of Normandy, has been accused of being a pirate and his father has been
imprisoned in the Bastille on the orders of his fiancée’s family. He is told that Lissette is
to marry an English Earl. He was in love with Lissette, but feels betrayed and wishes
revenge on her and all of her family.  When she falls into his hands, he plans to disgrace
her.

When the two finally get together they find that the attraction they had is still there, but
there is no trust on Girard’s part. He lies to her and fools her into a sham marriage as
part of his plan. Even when Lissette is instrumental in saving his friends, his father, and
himself; he cannot bring himself to trust her. She has to suffer unspeakable things to win
him over.

This is a very fast moving and exciting novel. Lissette is a very sympathetic heroine, and
Girard is very attractive, if very misguided. The supporting characters are very well
drawn, as is the atmosphere. The reader will feel like she is in pre-Revolutionary France
for a short time.
