With the help of the devious family doctor Luther persuades Mansel that Kate suffers from hereditary madness. When Mansel breaks off their engagement Kate is devastated. Luther then forces Kate to marry his nephew. Trapped with a husband she does not love Kate desperately tries to regain the lost love of her adored Mansel. 

Professional Reviews
A page-turning absorbing read, 14 Jul 2003
By "rodniseward" customer
This review is from: Bad to the Bone (Paperback) Gwen Madoc has turned out yet another page-turning book. This is the third book I have read from Madoc, and I think this one is the best so far. The plot is meaty with plenty of twists and turns, and the characters are unforgetable. Everything builds up to a highly dramatic ending which I found very exciting and hugely satisfying. I am looking forward with eager anticipation to Madoc's next book.
