This true story is every woman's dream...and every woman's nightmare. Sheri Heller was a beautiful young American woman who was open to adventure. Jacques de Borchgrave was a strikingly handsome, fabulously wealthy European nobleman who swept her off her feet and courted her from New York to sun-drenched St. Tropez to Paris, the pleasure capital of Europe.Then they were married - the fairy tale had reached its seemingly perfect climax, and Sheri thought she would live happily ever after with her Prince Charming.This is the horrifying story behind that fairy tale - and of the nightmare that began when a bride's dreams ended and her devastating discoveries began. It is a story no novelist would dare write, a story told by the only person who could tell it: the young woman who lived it. Who survived it. Who still has the memories that will haunt her all her life. Baroness Sheri de Borchgrave.The story of Baron Jacques de Borchgrave is the story of a man whose wealth, title, good looks, and superb skills in lovemaking hid a psychopath - and a history littered with female victims. It is a story of incest and death and shocking secrets...of blue-blooded couplings of every configuration at orgiastic parties within castle walls...and of a young bride from America initiated into the most unspeakable sins and corruptions of the aristocracy. But ultimately, it is the story of one man's madness, a family's secrets - and a woman's desperate flight for her life from a heavenly marriage that turned into an all-consuming hell.Baroness Sheri de Borchgrave has written a totally candid, unblinkingly honest book that represents her final liberation from the physical and psychological bondage that came so close to enslaving and destroying her. For all who seek the truth about life and love as it is lived and practiced by those who are ruled only by their desires, this is must reading.show more
