More About the Author

I've been writing since the dawn of time. A child prodigy, I made my first professional sale to Jack and Jill Magazine at the age of 7, for which I received $25 (admittedly my father worked for the publisher). Since then I've written gothics, regencies, romantic suspense, historical romance, series romance -- anything with sex and violence, love and redemption. I misbehave frequently, but somehow have managed to amass lots of glittering prizes, like NYT, PW and USA Today bestseller status, Lifetime Achievement Award from the Romance Writers of America, and a decent smattering of Romantic times and RITA awards.
I live on a lake in Northern Vermont with my incredibly fabulous husband. My two children have flown the coop, but the three cats do their best to keep us from being lonely.
In my spare time I quilt and play around with wearable art, and the rest of the time I write write write. Apparently women of a certain age get a rush of creativity, and I'm currently enjoying it. Too many stories to write, not enough hours in the day.

With some authors I just NEED to have every book they've written and Anne Stuart is one of them. If you've read any of her books (historical or modern) you know she goes in for a dark hero who is usually more bad than good (or maybe I should say so bad he's good). At any rate, I stumbled across this earlier book and WOW!!! What a ride. It takes place right after the French Revolution and our French heroine has managed to survive but not without a load of emotional scars. She is living in England when low and behold she is presented with the opportunity to take revenge on the Englishman (our hero) she blames for all the woes she and her family suffered during the reign of terror. And we're off. . . Needless to say things don't go as she plans. Great story line, great characters who are FULLY developed and complex. Wonderful "secondary character" love story. Order this book! It is worth the extra you will have to pay for a used copy. A definite keeper to add to your Anne Stuart collection. It's 394 sexy pages of adventure, tears and pleasure!

This book was described to me as a superlative example of the romance genre.

Well...it wasn't superlative for me. First of all, I did not buy the reason that had Nicholas being the tormented dark hero that he was. It was very lame and confused. I *think* what the author wanted to say, is that Nicholas's father didn't love him -- or at least, Nicholas *thought* his father didn't love him, and when his older brother died and Nicholas was all that was left, his father regretted that and let Nicholas know it. So, this was Nicholas's excuse to become a womanizing rakehell bent on self-destruction.

Secondly, I couldn't come to terms with Nicholas refusing to help Ghislaine's family when they were threatened by the oncoming French Revolution. He really loved her at that time, although she was only 15. But Nicholas gets a letter telling him his father's dead, so he uses THAT as an excuse to become all hard & cold, and tells Ghislaine's father he won't take her out of the country? Huh? This is the love of your life - your first love no less - the one person who makes you feel all tender & happy - and you're going to go haywire and not help her or her family, because you got a letter telling you your father's dead, and suddenly you feel unlovable?

More reasonably, I could see Nicholas feeling unlovable at age 35 after years of being a skanky rake, but at age 22, Nicholas should have been more mallable and willing to believe in love. But of course, if he had helped Gilly's family, there would no further story, because Gilly wouldn't have had anything to hate him for!

And that brings me to my third point: (SPOILERS) How can you ever love someone who left you in a very dangerous situtation that ultimately destroyed your family?

I thought I had read every book Anne Stuart had written, but somehow, I missed this wonderful one. Fortunately, I discovered one listed on amazon.com used, because for some stupid reason, Avon doesn't have the good sense to keep this one in reprint. It another of Stuart's display of genius, that mesmerizes the reader to where you cannot put it down. She catches you up from page one and won't let you go, until she puts you through an emotional ringer. She gives you another of those Gamma-Rogue Males that has a black heart and a blacker soul.
Ghislaine de Lorgny is out to kill Nicholas Blackthorne - along with numerous cuckolded husbands - and she has plenty of reasons. Gilly blames the death of her family on the guillotine and the loss of her virtue at Blackthone's door. When Gilly was fifteen, Nicholas visited his Godparents (Gilly's parents) just as The Terror was sweeping through France. Gilly fell in love with the beautiful Nicholas, and Nicholas demonstrated affection for Gilly. But when her father begs Nicholas to take her to England, away from Napoleon's nightmare reign, Nicholas coldly dismisses him, unknowingly consigning Gilly's family to death. She escaped with her 12-year-old brother onto the streets of Paris, where she watched her parents killed. Left to see to her brother's and her survival, the nightmare continued. An evil man sold Gilly into prostitution and had her brother carried away, likely killed. Gilly has carried that hatred for ten years, but finally her time for revenge has come.
Nicholas Blackthorne, the last of the mad Blackthornes, has lived his life knowing his mother and father hated that his brother had died instead of him. So, he did everything he could to live up to the mad Blackthorne's reputation.

The characters in this novel are tortured and somewhat unlovable, but they are so wounded and needy that they complement one another. Anne Stuart is such a clever and skilful writer that she is able to take a storyline that could fail miserably in someone else's hands, and write something delightful and compelling. Think of this book as a reluctant buddy novel where the hero and the heroine go on a road trip.

I ran across this book in a used book store,and I thought that the cover was horrible but have really enjoyed many of Anne Stuart's books so I bought it. I have never enjoyed a book so much. I read at least 4 or 5 romance novels a month and this is quite possiblely one of the best romances I have ever read. The heroine and hero are both tortured souls, each with a past they have to come to terms with. The beginning of the this book is by far the most orginal I've ever read with the heroine plotting and planning the hero's murder. There is also a secondary love story in this book that is almost just as good as the primary one. If you like rich detail, with high sexual tension and accurate historical settings and you're ever lucky enough to run across this book,grab it up in a hurry.I promise you will not be disappointed... Great Romance!
