Eugénie: a beautiful young aristocrat seeking sanctuary in England from the violence of the French Revolution.
Hetta: her English cousin, passionate, headstrong and fired by revolutionary ideals.
Across the Channel waits the vengeful Pale Assassin, determined to claim Eugénie for himself. With her brother’s life at stake, how can she refuse his dreadful bargain? But it will mean sacrificing her chance of romance and returning to Paris in the grip of the Terror. Eugénie must now decide her destiny – with or without Hetta’s help.
Though this is a sequel to The Pale Assassin, it is a complete story in itself and you can read it without having read the earlier one first.
