Victorian England sets the stage for a passionate, unforgettable romance between a diplomat's daughter and a notorious mercenary who has targeted her father for assassination.
It is 1857, during the time of India's first uprising against the British. Destiny Fontaine, a young widow, meets Jason Batson, unaware that he has been hired by the British government to determine whether her father is heading up India's rebellion. While she falls in love with him, and becomes pregnant by him, she is unaware that he and the British government are hoping she will lead him to her father.
Notorious is a stunning re-creation of a dark time in history, brilliantly interwoven with a dangerous love affair between two headstrong people who come from two different worlds.
