I remember reading this book when I was young and impressionable. I thought it was the best book ever, judged all historical romances by it, and could never quite get rid of the book. Don't know if I would think the same today but it is still in the basement so maybe I'll read it again. It also has a sequel about her daughter but I don't remember that one as well.

Illegitimate daughter of an English aristocrat and a prim young governess, Maureen had fiery beauty, intelligence and a tempestuous spirit no man could subdue. Stubborn in loyalty, passionate in love, her turbulent romance with a handsome French nobleman would take her from the high seas to every capital of Europe before it reached its triumphant consummation.
