Sunset

(1978)
(The fifth book in the Caribee of the Hiltons series)
A novel by

 
 
Jamaica in the late 1800s.

The bells toll as a woman dies in childbirth, giving her husband not the son he always longed for, but a daughter called Meg Hilton.

Meg grows up into a messy and adventurous girl, forever running around the countryside of Jamaica instead of becoming a "proper" Englishwoman. That becomes even more apparent when her cousin Oriole arrives, who condemns her roguish behaviour and tries to teach her to be a Hilton.

As a beautiful, developed, white teenager, she soon attracts attention. When she is caught one day bathing in a black man's river, she joins them in an erotic ceremony and disgusted by her, Oriole takes her to England to be a proper lady, where she seduces Oriole herself...

A life of promiscuity and lust begins.

There were so many partners in Meg Hilton's search for fulfilment: an aristocratic governess, a childhood sweetheart, a renegade black man, an English lord, a swaggering sea captain, a ruthless, rapacious husband and more.

What, or who, will it take for her to feel fulfilled?

This ravishing heiress to the Hilton pride, power, and passion broke every taboo to satisfy every need...

'Sunset' is masterfully written. Christopher Nicole's historical novel combines romance and intrigue, adventure and social history, in a gripping piece of epic storytelling.
