reviewed Jemma on
Barmaid, society's darling, social reformer, spy and the notorious Madam X. Jemma was all these women. And more...

Jemma's tale is an extraordinary adventure sprawling with life and overflowing with richly realized characters. Her adoring stepmother, Phoebe, and Phoebe's cruel and lustful husband, Amos. Milly, the devoted servant who would do anything to preserve Jemma's happiness. The dashingly handsome Englishman, Garth Winters, who, overnight, transformed Jemma from a girl to a woman. And England's most eligible bachelor, Lord Peter Ramsdale.

Lord Ramsdale wed her, amde her the reigning queen of Mayfair society, but could not give Jemma the love she so desperately needed. Until the night Jemma discovered his terrible secret...and changed her life forever.
