Product Description

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."

Praise for No Angel:
"Penny Vincenzi dazzlingly combines the old-fashioned virtues of gripping storytelling with the up-to-the-minute contemporary feel for emotional depth and insight into the lives of her characters. The multi-generational saga is a notoriously difficult genre to get right, but since she is a supremely stylish, deft, and clever writer, reading a Penny Vincenzi novel is an addictive experience." Elizabeth Buchan, author of Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman, Perfect Love, and Consider the Lily

"Penny Vincenzi writes with verve and heart, immersing the reader in a world of engrossing and unforgettable glamour and passion. No Angel is a highly entertaining family saga." Dominick Dunne

"The characters' authenticity and the meticulously researched backgrounds make this a fascinating social documentary as well as a great love story." Family Circle

"Seductively readable I carried on reading late into the night." The Times

"Packed with passion, pain, pace, and palaver it's high-class, well-structured, with enough juicy sub-plots and interesting minor characters to keep you gripped though many an evening. Fans are in for a feast." Van Hennessy, Daily Mail

"An impressive, silky smooth saga, which explores the boudoir and business of a mega-rich family." Sunday Telegraph

"Will keep you eagerly turning the pages." Cosmopolitan

Penny Vincenzi worked at such magazines as Vogue, Tatler, and Cosmopolitan before becoming a full-time novelist. Her other novels include No Angel, Something Dangerous, Into Temptations, Almost a Crime, Sheer Abandon, and An Outrageous Affair. She is married with four children.
