When the Marquis surprises everybody by giving his attentions to Emily, he makes himself a fairy tale prince in her eyes. But marrying her prince is not the end of Emily’s troubles, as the forces of envy are more cunning and more dangerous than she can yet understand. Will Emily’s innocence be her downfall after all?

“[A] pretty love story (all the more attractive because of its improbability).” Literary News
“The strength of this tale lies in the taking realism with which the romantic plot is clothed.” Overland Monthly
