Marooned and forgotten on an island that eventually claims all but 10 of the seventy souls aboard, Francois endures the five long years on her memory alone. However, when he finally sets foot back in France, he believes he's seen and committed too many horrors and is no longer worthy of her.Cosette de Montmorency was forced to accept life as a courtesan in order to support herself and young sister after Francois disappearance.

When their pasts entwine them in a web of court intrigue and lies, will they be able to deny their hearts true desire and work together to unravel the threads? Or will their passion again spell their doom, separating them once more only this time forever?
