`Palace Circle is a gem, filled with dashing lords, gutsy ladies, family secrets and royal intrigue.' Barbara Delinsky
American Heiress Delia Chandler leaves Virginia to marry Viscount Ivor Conisborough, completely unprepared for her new place within the royal circle. Soon she is holding dinner parties for Winston Churchill and Wallis Simpson and attending glittering balls with Prince Edward. But beneath the dazzling facade, Delia quickly discovers a world steeped in scandal. It seems everyone has a secret, including her husband.
When Ivor is sent to Cairo and appointed advisor to King Fuad, Delia must follow with her two daughters. Like their mother, Petra and Davina are fiery beauties who long to escape the elegant and palatial villas of Garden City for the exotic, wild beating heart of Cairo. But their desires will lead them into dangerous territory, shattering their world as they know it, forever.
Drenched in glamour, secrets and scandal, Palace Circle is an irresistible combination of real historical events and masterful storytelling.

Rebecca Dean's first historical novel, Enemies of the Heart, was inspired by her own German/British family history. Intrigued by the character of Edward Vlll, who makes an appearance in Palace Circle, Rebecca is currently writing a novel based on his early court life at Windsor when, as Prince of Wales, he was the most glittering icon of his times. Happily married, Rebecca Dean has five children, two small dogs and, though a Yorkshire girl born and bred, lives in London.
