It was a love so strong, a king renounced his kingdom, all for that woman. Or was Wallis Simpson something more convenient for the Prince of Wales—an escape route for a monarch who never wanted to rule? Wendy Holden considers the royal scandal of the century from a different perspective.

We'll never know, but fans of biographical fiction and British royalty will thoroughly enjoy this sparkling tale."—Booklist
