Plot -

Alice Verney is a young woman intent on achieving her dreams.  Having left Restoration England in the midst of a messy scandal, she has been living in Louis XIV's Baroque, mannered France for two years.  Now she is returning home to England and anxious to re-establish herself quickly.  First, she will regain her former position as a maid of honor to Charles II's queen.  Then she will marry the most celebrated duke of the Restoration, putting herself in a position to attain power she's only dreamed of.  As a duchess, Alice will be able to make or break her friends and enemies at will.

 

But all is not as it seems in the rowdy, merry court of Charles II...
