Description
The Georgian romance that launched the career of the New York Times-bestselling author is "the sort of tale which leaves us breathless with delight." -Boston Evening Transcript When the Duke of Avon encounters a mistreated young boy on the streets of Paris, he employs the lad as his page. As the duke's closest friends ponder his actions, the precocious Léon soon becomes the talk of the aristocracy. Léon cannot believe his good fortune after being saved from a brutal beating by his older brother. He follows the duke around like a loyal puppy, a constant source of amusement for the duke, who is seen by himself-and by society-as a devious scoundrel, well deserving of his nickname, Satanas. But when Avon uncovers Léon's biggest secret-that the boy is in fact a girl named Léonie-he acts honorably, taking her to his sister in London to learn the ways of the fairer sex, before he can adopt her. For Avon can't believe his luck. A trump card has fallen into his hands. If Léonie is who the duke suspects she is, she'll be the perfect weapon to use against his greatest nemesis. He embarks on his quest for revenge, never foreseeing just how Léonie's transformation will change the game . . . "Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic." -Katie Fforde "A world of high romance, of adventure, of passions that shimmer just beneath the surface." -Stephanie Laurens, #1 New York Times-bestselling author "You're in for a treat." -Nora Roberts, #1 New York Times-bestselling author The Georgian romance that launched the career of the New York Times-bestselling author is "the sort of tale which leaves us breathless with delight." -Boston Evening Transcript When the Duke of Avon encounters a mistreated young boy on the streets of Paris, he employs the lad as his page.
