Marianne and the Rebels :
As the city of Florence basks in afternoon sunlight, pleasurable anticipation stirs in the heart of beautiful Marianne d'Asselnat, Princess Sant'Anna. The trials and uncertainties of her eventful past life seem almost over, for she is soon to rejoin her beloved sea rover Jason Beaufort and enjoy with him a peaceful future in America. So she is not particularly dismayed when called upon to render a last vital service to her master, the Emperor Napoleon, whom once she had known as lover and still called friend. But, abruptly, an ominous shadow appears in her future, cast by the dark influence of her unseen husband, the mysterious masked Prince Corrado. The tricks of fate then force her to embark on a perilous odyssey which carries her from luxurious Venice, through Greek islands smoldering with revolt, to the court of the legendary Sultans of the Ottoman Empire. Through all her adventures her spirit is sustained by her passionate love for Jason, yet always strange, dark forces seem intent on drawing him away from her... Here is another exciting novel of the world of Europe as Napoleon I strives to make France master of Europe, indeed of the world, and himself its tyrant. The action moves through the courts of Europe and the then largely unknown Ottoman Empire, and a host of characters from the pages of history flit through its pages, bringing a glittering age vividly to life. Marianne and the Rebels, like its author's earlier novels chronicling the adventures of Marianne d'Asselnat, offers historical romance at its satisfying, exciting best.
