Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte will stop at nothing to marry
the Hapsburg princess he hopes will bear him a royal heir, in this
compelling novel from bestselling author Michelle
After the bloody French Revolution, Emperor
Napoleon's power is absolute. When eighteen year old Marie-Louise
is told that the Emperor has demanded her hand in marriage, her
father presents her with a terrible choice: marry the cruel,
capricious Napoleon or refuse and plunge her country into war.
To save her father''s throne, Mary-Louise is determined to be a
good wife. But at the extravagant French court, she finds many
rivals for her new husband's affection, including
Napoleon's sister Pauline, who is fiercely jealous, utterly
uncontrollable, and the only woman as ambitious as the emperor
himself. When war once again sweeps the Continent and
bloodshed threatens Marie-Louise's family, the second empress is
forced to make choices that will determine her place in history-and
change the course of her life.
