A Dangerous Desire

(2009)
(Palace Circle)
A novel by

 
 
When eighteen year-old Delia Chandler weds the much older English peer Viscount Ivor Conisborough, she is plunged into the heart of British high society. Life as part of the palace circle is very different from any she has experienced in Virginia, and nothing in her new life is as it seems. Ivor has a secret that destroys their marriage, and her close friend, fellow American Wallis Simpson, has a secret she shares only with Delia - a secret that will one day rock the country. When Ivor is appointed as an advisor to King Fuad of Egypt, Delia is separated from the man who has come to mean more to her than life itself, and is plunged into yet another court circle - this time one that is rife with political secrets and that has the notoriously lecherous young Prince Farouk at its hub.

To Delia, Egypt represents exile. To her two daughters, Egypt is home. It is a division of loyalties that becomes increasingly marked as Egypt struggles to free itself from British occupation, and it reaches cataclysmic proportions when Britain declares war on Germany. Cairo, always exotically decadent, becomes a nest of spies, and for Delia, personal secrets that have been hidden for years merge explosively with political and military intrigues. For the sake of those she loves, her own secret can remain secret no longer.
