A steamy historical novel described as "Girl with a Pearl Earring" meets "Dangerous Liaisons." Elza believed she and her Dutch husband would live happily ever after. But he soon turned cold, dismissive, and scornful. When he grows violent, she leaves everything and runs away to post-revolutionary Paris, where she finds herself in need of a protector. Elza makes a deal with a commander in the French army: in exchange for his defense against her husband, she will become his mistress. Elza finds that she has a survivor's instincts, a courtesan's passion, and the gift of second sight.
