GIRL -- Lovely young copper-haired Rolande Henry was forced onto the stage at an early age to survive in a cruel world of designing men.
INTO BOY -- She was cunningly trained to act out the role of a missing lad who stood to inherit the most fabulous fortune in England.
INTO BEAUTY -- She was just as capable of donning a wig and a revealing gown to play the part of a devastating society seductress.
INTO BATTLE -- But nothing had prepared Rolande to face the charm of a captivating, conscienceless aristocrat on one hand, and the danger of an unknown assailant of the other...as suddenly she had her fair hands full in a fight for life and love that she dared not lose...
The fashionable world waited with bated breath to see whether dashing Jasper Carrington would inherit the huge fortune left in the Arcourt Will.
But the will had been a cause celebre for years - and would be for many more unless the eligible Mr Carrington could enlist the help of a penniless young actress. Copperheaded Rolande was intrigued by his suggestion that she masquerade as his long-lost cousin Giles. Little did she know that she would be caught up in a web of glittering intrigue and a plan which would lead to a new disguise as an exotic Hungarian countess whose exquisite beauty and mysterious past would make her the toast of Brighton.
