controversial marriage to an unconventional photographer, she is drawn into an elite realm of glamour
As the nation faces an explosive upheaval, Blaise must grapple with a series of shocking scandals at
the pinnacle of British society. Yet, haunted by a threat from her past and torn between two very
different men, who can she trust in a world of hidden motives and shifting alliances? If she makes the
wrong choice, she will lose everything.
