In this contemporary classic of harrowing suspense and forbidden romance by #1 New York Timesbestselling author Nora Roberts, a young woman trapped in the limelight plots a daring act of revenge—which may have fatal consequences.
At twenty-five, Princess Adrianne lives a life most people would envy. Beautiful and elegant, she spends her days dabbling in charities and her nights floating from one glamorous gala to the next. But her pampered-rich-girl pose is a ruse, a carefully calculated effort to hide a dangerous truth.
For ten years Adrianne has lived for revenge. As a child, she could only watch the cruelty hidden behind the façade of her parents’ fairy-tale marriage. Now she has the perfect plan to make her famous father pay. Yet just as she is poised to take her vengeance, she meets a man who seems to divine her every secret. Clever, charming, and enigmatic, Philip Chamberlain has his own reasons for getting close to Adrianne. And soon she will find herself up against two formidable men: one with the knowledge to take her freedom, the other with the power to take her life.
