Only Rhys was handsome and powerful and ambitious enough to satisfy Thorns passionate nature- only Rhys knew her strength -- and her weakness.

Again and again she was drawn helplessly back to him, though she knew he could destroy her.During the 1850s the town of Llangoed in the Welsh border country lived off its sprawling ironworks, which were left to Thorn and her brother Randall at their fathers death. Thorn became mistress at Vale End manor -- she lived her own life, made her own friends, rode hard on her great thoroughbred horses, until the day Rhys first kissed her. But Rhys plans for wealth and power did not include Thorn on her own terms, and one night, in a terrible drunken struggle, he thrust her roughly from him.

Schocked, hurt, and bewildered, she fled to her fascinating, ageless Aunt Chloris in Paris, and there the world opened brilliantly before. This was the world of Napoleon III and Eugenie and the Second Empire -- a haut monde in which folly was fashion and fashions were follies.

Thorn met and was courted by many worldly noblemen of wealth, among them Edmond, Comte de Laurignac. Then suddenly the war of 1870 burst upon them, and brought with it the bitter siege of Paris. And only then did Thorn come to know what love truly meant -- though she went back, inevitably, to Llangoed, to face Rhys Vaughan once again.
