Under the cloak of darkness, Sophia LaRue wields justice as the legendary "Twilight's Ghost." Most think she operates as the mysterious man's mistress, but few know the truth. So when she's kidnapped and held in exotic splendor by Jarrod Stone her one thought is of escape -- before he unmasks her identity. But as time passes and their passion flares, Sophia finds it more and more difficult to break free. Determined to find the person he believes has betrayed his brother, Jarrod has taken tempestuous Sophia, hoping that holding her captive will unmask the Ghost, who must certainly come to rescue her. But slowly, he comes to suspect that Sophia is surprisingly innocent to a man's touch ... but guilty of so much more. Soon Jarrod must make an impossible choice -- between love and revenge.

Editor: Cambridge University Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Restoration London's leading actor and theatre manager Thomas Betterton has not been the subject of a biography since 1891. He worked with all the best-known playwrights of his age and with the first generation of English actresses; he was intimately involved in the theatre's responses to politics, and became a friend of leading literary men such as Pope and Steele. His innovations in scenery and company management, and his association with the dramatic inheritance of Shakespeare, helped to change the culture of English theatre. David Roberts's entertaining study unearths new documents and draws fresh conclusions about this major but shadowy figure. It contextualizes key performances and examines Betterton's relationship to patrons, colleagues and family, as well as to significant historical moments and artefacts. The most substantial study available of any seventeenth-century actor, Thomas Betterton gives one of England's greatest performing artists his due on the tercentenary of his death.
