Book description
Lorna... at 15 the vibrant daughter of a Maryland farmer... at 30 the mistress of Russian's mightiest Tsar.

From colonial America to the dazzling court of St. James and the barbaric splendors of St. Petersburg, here are the riveting adventures of Lorna, who was mistress and plaything to three monarchs. They called her the Tsar's mistress, but she was her own woman and she loved only one man. What she really wanted was to find the young Swedish lieutenant who once saved her life and from whom she first learned the meaning of love....

The crisp thud of the axes echoed in the still morning air and was suddenly overtaken by a tearing sound, as of the entire universe being wrenched from its place. Sean MacMahon gave a hasty upwards glance and shouted, "Timber!"
