Gold for the Gay Masters by the late Denise Robins, a prolific and highly popular British romantic novelist back in the day, is the 1st novel in her Fauna Trilogy of vintage f/m romantic historical drama novels set in Georgian England, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Hodder & Stoughton.
This was originally published in 1954 using the Harriet Gray pseudonym. The series is an old school passionate dramatic generational saga involving high society scandal, akin to the works of later authors Jackie Collins and Barbara Taylor Bradford where the love story does not necessarily play out according to romance genre conventions and/or end happily ever after. This volume is centred around a heroine who rises from unfortunate beginnings as a slave and plaything to the wealthy, who escapes her seeming rescuer and becomes a dazzling socialite in Regency London, with her heart set on taking revenge upon the only man she has ever loved.
Offered in selected regions worldwide (excluding North America), available at multiple retailers.
Free for a limited time, available in selected regions worldwide @ Amazon, Kobo, Google Play, iTunes (this was free in the UK, EU, Japan, and South America when I spot-checked the regional stores by changing the country code in applicable URLs)
A captivating love story from the 100-million-copy bestselling Queen of Romance, first published in 1954, and available now for the first time in eBook.
Which tastes sweeter – yearned-for love, or revenge that has waited a lifetime?
Sold into slavery as a young girl, the exquisitely beautiful Fauna is eventually rescued by noted dandy, Lord Pumphret. Sure her life is set to improve, Fauna is smuggled from Africa to Georgian England – only to become the plaything and victim of those who make up Pumphret’s circle…
That is, until she meets noble Frenchman, the Marquis de Charteller. As Madame la Marquise, Fauna dazzles the society of Regency London, but nothing eases the searing pain in her heart – nothing but revenge for the terrible way she was once used and vengeance on the only man she has ever loved…
