Abstract:

John Wentworth had made his mark as Governor of New Hampshire just before the American Revolution, in spite of growing colonial ferment over British rule--and in spite of his young and restless wife. But then the Revolution exploded into mob violence, and the Governor was forced to flee to England. In the fashionable whirl of London, with its court intrigues and political fortune grabbers, it became evident to all but John that his wife was gambling with his future for her own ends. But it was not until he was sent to a post in Nova Scotia that his wife's designs came clear. There, Frances Wentworth was to employ all her seductive charm to its limits.--From publisher description.
