Lovely Katherine Deveraux is extremely aware of her position as heiress to a duke and of the behavior she believes is required of her. So much so, in fact, that she alienates everyone she meets with her haughty ways. When she slanders a fellow student at Mrs. Treadwell's Academy, however, its founders decide to teach her a lesson she will not soon forget: Alain Montclair is hired to seduce Katherine and break her heart. Ultimately, he is so successful at his task that when he casts her off, she blithely discards honor, reputation, and the training of a lifetime to follow him not only unchaperoned but as his mistress, first to Paris and then the vineyards. Hingston's wildly improbable yet riveting adventure romance displays jarring inconsistencies in language, setting, and behavior meant to be historically appropriate to the last days of the Napoleonic Wars, but in spite of those flaws, it's an entertaining read.
