She witnessed a murder - and now her life is in danger . . . Fifteen year-old Belle, though raised in a London brothel, is an innocent. But when she witnesses one of the girls brutally strangled by a client, she is cast into a cruel, heartless world. Snatched from the streets and sold into prostitution, she is made a courtesan in New Orleans. At the mercy of desperate men who crave her beauty and will do anything to keep her, Belle's dreams of home, family and freedom appear futile. Are Belle's courage and spirit strong enough to help her escape? And what will await her at the end of the long, dangerous journey home? Lesley Pearse, author of Number One bestseller Stolen, has done it again with Belle - a heroine for our times- a strong woman trying to be good in a world gone bad. Praise for Lesley Pearse 'Pearse wil pull on your heart strings with this well-crafted story.' Sun 'A glorious heart-warming saga.' Woman & Home 'An atmospheric cracker with lots of twists.' Woman

This is an excellent book with lots of intrigue, romance, determination and humour BUT it also contains coarse language, sexual content and disturbing situations. This is the first in the 'Belle' series with 'The Promise' and 'The Survivor' being part 2 and 3.

This is a very good book which leaves you waiting anxiously for the sequel which is also excellent. It certainly does make you want to keep reading from cover to cover!

I felt it became a little predictable towards the end of the book but it is a really good read. Leasley Pearse really knew what she was doing!
