Overview

Betrayed in a foreign land, one woman desperately attempts to return home in the sequel to AUTUMN RAIN. Never thought to be particularly pretty, Englishwoman Katherine Winsteady is flattered and overwhelmed by the attentions of the Russian Count Alexei Volsky and his sister Galena. When the Count proposes marriage, Kate thinks her dreams have come true, and readily accepts. Isolated in the Count’s frozen Russian estate, Kate quickly learns she is pregnant with the Count’s child. The celebration is short lived as Kate discovers with horror her part in an elaborate plot for an heir, and the true relationship between the Count and his sister. Driven to flee in the Russian winter, Kate turns to the rakish Viscount Townsend, a family friend who has been hiding in Russia while contemplating his return to England. After bearing such a dark betrayal, will Kate’s heart ever feel warmth again? 

Sweeping from the green hills of England to the majesty of the Imperial Russian court, here is the thrilling sequel to Autumn Rain. Rich with breathless adventure, dark betrayal, passion and sensuality, it is a new triumph for Mills, the winner of three Reviewer's Choice Awards. Original.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This intriguing but sadly chauvinistic sequel to Autumn Rain revolves around a young woman and a dastardly plot to secure an heir. Accompanying Alexander I to London in 1814, Count Alexei Volsky and his sister Galena overwhelm the plucky but not particularly attractive Katherine Winstead with their attentions. For this daughter of a gaming baron who took his own life, Volsky's proposal of marriage seems too good to be true, and of course, it is. Pregnant and isolated in the Volsky's Russian estate, Kate discovers the true nature of her role--and of Galena's. For her difficult flight home, Kate turns to her brother's friend, the rake Bellamy, Viscount Townsend, who appeared in Autumn Rain and is now laying low in Russia following another messy affair and having second thoughts about his shallow life. Mills is to be commended for creating a heroine who is truly more character than looks, nor does Mills flinch at including the more quotidian fleshy realities. The real weakness is her portrayal of Russians as sadistic and perverted. The era that gave birth to Pushkin, Gogol and Lermontov deserves a more evenhanded treatment. (Sept.)

    Great sad and wondeful book

    This book was such a page turner. I was so heartbroken when I read this book and even though I wished my heroine's husband would wake up from his folly it was not to be. I'm so glad she found some sort of happiness, but her husband and his sister, they are wrong... so...so very wrong. Get it, a complete page turner from beginning to end.
