A spirited and passionate novel with a grand scope, set in the early decades of the twentieth century by internationally best-selling novelist Penny Vincenzi.

With over 3.5 million novels sold, Penny Vincenzi is one of the world's preeminent writers of popular fiction-and American readers no longer have to miss out on the fun. With the publication of No Angel, which introduces the epic cast of characters in the Lytton family, Overlook launches a thrilling new dimension to this author's already illustrious career.

No Angel is an irresistibly sweeping saga of passion and family: a riveting drama and a fervent love story. Celia Lytton is the strong-willed daughter of wealthy aristocrats who is used to getting her own way. She moves through life making difficult and often dangerous decisions that effect herself and others-not only her husband and children; but the destitute Sylvia Miller, whose life is transformed by Celia's intrusion; Oliver's daunting elder sister, who is not all she appears to be; and Sebastian Brooke, for whom Celia makes the most dangerous decision of all. Set against the tumultuous period of the First World War, No Angel is, as Good Housekeeping wrote, "an absorbing page-turner, packed with believable characters and satisfyingly extreme villains, eccentrics and manipulators."
