These Old Shades (Thorndike Press Large Print Clean Reads)
These Old Shades - Thorndike Press Large Print Clean Reads Author:Georgette Heyer A classic tale of intrigue, adventure and love from the ?Grande Dame? of romantic historical novels set in Regency England.
Justin Alastair, the coldhearted Duke of Avon, had revenge in mind as he plucked a flame-haired urchin off the Paris streets. For Avon suspected the truth about his delicately handsome page that "Léon" was really Léonie and none other than the wicked Comte de Saint Vire's legitimate daughter, deprived of her heritage by the comte's dastardly desire for a male heir. The duke's plan was simple: Parade Léonie in front of his enemy and have his adoring, innocent
ward reclaim her birthright, destroying her true father in the process. But the duke hadn't expected Léonie's breathtaking transformation or the tender emotions she awoke especially since he'd already set his dangerous scheme in motion.
