Angelique is a short story.
"The Marquise de Chabernet, her French grandmother, had fixed her with glittering eyes and told her when she was but 10 years old, 'If there is something that you want in this life, mon ange, do not believe anyone who says you cannot have it.'"
But Angelique, living with the Duke and Duchess of Saith and their daughter beautiful Rosalind feels too distant from hope to want anything. And then she sees handsome, wicked Sir Rafael Villiers, and she knows her Destiny. It is time for the plain and timid Miss Torrington to remember she is also a de Chabernet, and her grandmother's daughter. But Villiers is interested in her beautiful cousin - so how can she get his attention?
Can Angelique pull it off? With the help of Rosalind's brother, her amused confidant Ferdinand, she just might do it.
