"THE PROLIFIC MISS HOLT COMBINES SUSPENSE AND ROMANCE WITH THE MASTER'S TOUCH."
For as long as she could remember, the exquisite Lenore Cleremont had lived at The Silk House, the luxurious English country estate of the wealthy Sallonger family. Neither servant nor true member of the family, she grew up under the protection of her Grand'mere--who worked designing the luxurious gowns for the family's vast silk trade.
Lenore showed promise as a dress designer herself. But most important, she had won the heart of the two charismatic Sallonger sons: Charles, handsome but cruel, and Phillip, as kind-hearted as he was charming.
But tragedy was ready to strike. Soon Lenore found herself playing a central role in a drama that threatened to destroy everything she held dear. . . .
"Victoria Holt [is] the doyenne of romantic suspense fiction."
