ABOUT THIS BOOK
PUBLICATION DATE: June 4, 2009
By (author) Emma Blair
Even to a girl from the slums of Bristol, the streets of Glasgow were inhospitable and grey; the wealth and splendour of its mansions cold and heartless. But for Hester Dark, there could be no turning back – she would make this cruel city the home of her dreams. Everyone said that Hester was lucky. Lucky to have a wealthy uncle in Scotland who was willing to take her in. Lucky to have all the advantages that his money could buy. But Hester’s new, bright world held dark secrets, jealousies, and fears. And no one had spoken of the women who would despise her for her beauty and her independence – and the men who would buy her soul and call it love.
Emma Blair was born in Glasgow and now lives in Devon. She is the author of many bestselling novels including SCARLET RIBBONS and FLOWER OF SCOTLAND, both of which were shortlisted for the Romantic Novelist of the Year.
