Now Adelaide’s former lover, the passionate poet from whose arms she was torn by her family during their illicit liaison in Milan four years previously has returned, a celebrity due to the success of his book The Maid of Milan.

About Beverley Eikli
Beverley Eikli is the award-winning author of eight historical romances, laced with mystery and intrigue.
She has worked as a journalist, magazine editor, a safari lodge manager in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, and an airborne geophysical survey operator working in the back of low-flying aircraft on contracts around the world.
Beverley's writing career took off when she married the handsome Norwegian bush pilot she met around a camp fire in Botswana. As a pilot's wife living in twelve different countries - and, often as the only woman on the survey contracts she worked on - writing romance was her preferred entertainment when her male colleagues were playing cards.
Beverley loves exploring complex issues such as the consequences faced by characters who make errors of judgement in a punitive society. However her heroines always have the wit to triumph over the strictures of the society in which they live, even as they battle the dangerous currents which threaten to swamp them.
Beverley and her husband have finally settled in a pretty country town near Melbourne, Australia, where she teaches in the Department of Professional Writing & Editing at Victoria University.
