Her Royal Highness, the Princess of Wales, was just an ordinary young woman when she was selected to be the Prince's bride and future queen. But she was deceived and betrayed before the honeymoon was over - and five months later, pregnant with the heir to the throne, she threw herself down a flight of stairs. And after suffering degradation and humiliation at the hands of her husband, the Princess took the ultimate revenge. To defend herself, the Princess reaches across the Atlantic and hires Marlowe James. Dubbed the "burning bed lawyer" by the news media because of her successful defence of women who kill their abusive husbands, Marlowe not only has to battle with barristers loyal to the Crown, but has to come to grips with her own feelings about a woman who was handed everything any woman would desire, and then threw it away. The explosive tale that will be exposed in the courtroom is one of jealous rage and unfulfilled desire, sexual deceit by one of the most powerful men on earth - and bloody revenge enacted by a woman scorned!
