Praise for The Diamond of London

"Real-life Regency adventuress Lady Hester Stanhope may very well have been the prototype for every historical heroine who despises rules, rides astride, falls in love as she pleases, and courts adventure in ballrooms and battlefields alike--and Andrea Penrose brings her to glittering life in this well-penned historical debut. Hester bucks convention at every turn, rejecting marriage to become her Prime Minister uncle's political hostess and take her place on the world stage, but war and heartbreak will force her to ask what future she really wants. The Diamond of London simply sparkles!" --Kate Quinn, New York Times Bestselling author of The Diamond Eye on The Diamond of London
