Una arrolladora novela de suspense romántico de Victoria Holt.

Era una historia triste, pues la madre de Lenore murió al nacer ella y madame Cleremont, una experta diseñadora de tejidos de seda, prefirió criar a su nieta lejos de Villers-Mûre, la aldea francesa donde habían vivido hasta entonces.

Sir Francis Sallonger contrató a madame Cleremont para su industria inglesa de seda y la acogió con su nieta en su casa familiar. Lenore no podía imaginar que, además de las revelaciones del pasado, el futuro le depararía sorpresas nuevas y de incierto desenlace, al desarrollar un gran talento como diseñadora de modas y despertar el amor de los dos hermanos Sallonger...

A young woman uncovers her family's dark secrets in this mystery and her connection to a famously cursed gemstone in this Victorian gothic thriller from an internationally bestselling author

To secure her inheritance, Jessica Clavering agrees to a marriage of convenience, but will her handsome new husband's desire for her ever surpass his obsession with a famously cursed opal?

It's only once they arrive on the faraway continent that Jessica starts to uncover her family's dark past and her connection to the Green Flash, an exquisite and spellbinding opal. The stone arouses a dangerous desire in anyone who sees it-even her husband.

Blending historical romance with elements of the paranormal, The Pride of the Peacock is an exhilarating tale from the Queen of Gothic Romance. Fans of Susanna Kearsley, Daphne Du Maurier, and Kate Morton will be spellbound by classic story of an overseas voyage, a cursed opal, and forbidden desire.
