The only survivor of a family of seven, Hortense has learned to wield her beauty like a weapon. After working her way from the streets of Rheims to the palace of Versailles, she will let nothing stop her from achieving the ultimate prize.
Her destiny, however, is intertwined with a priest who desires much more than her piety—the Cardinal Hugo de Limoges. The fate of a kingdom hangs in the balance and Hortense is ready to tip the scales.
Intrigue. Temptation. Power.
“Wealth, power and love are the only things worth possessing. If you have wealth, you have power and where power lies, love comes to call.” -Hortense
