From the back cover of the book:
"Born into a world of wealth and pleasure, Annette Vallon enjoys privileges of aristocracy, but a burning curiosity and headstrong independence set her apart from other women of her class. Spoiled by the novels of Rousseau, she refuses to be married unless it is for passion. Her stubborn devotion to her romantic principles bears the sweetest fruit when William Wadsworth, a young English poet, enters her life. She will be his mistress, his muse, his obsession. But theirs is a love that will test Annette in unexpected ways, bring great joy and gravest peril in a dark time of chaos, upheaval, and death.

Set amid the terror and excitement of the French Revolution, "Annette Vallon" is an enthralling and evocative tale that captures the courageous spirit of a remarkable woman who, for too long has been relegated to the shadows of history."
