"Amsterdam 1758, and a man is artfully seducing a woman. He is, to all appearances, Monsieur le Chevalier de Seingalt, she a courtesan well-known in Amsterdam for the fact that she never removes her veil. He sets her a challenge: if she can find a woman who has suffered after falling in love with him, she is entitled to resist his charms; if not, she should play his game." "What Seingalt doesn't know is that he has already met the veiled woman many years ago, in another life. What Lucia doesn't know is that Seingalt will go down in history as one of the world's greatest lovers, Casanova." "The inspiration for this perfectly plotted, wonderfully romantic historical novel lies in Casanova's memoirs, and a tine reference to the woman he fell in love with as a young man, but later met, hideously disfigured, in an Amsterdam brothel."--BOOK JACKET.
