. . . Lara Basmajinik, protagonist of Seduction of the Scepter:
Lara is an 18th century noblewoman from one of the Great Houses of the Eastern European country of Varonobsk. She has kept a journal from her 12th year. In it she vows that she will marry for love, not for political advantage, as her older sister, Leonilda, was forced to do. As the daughter of Varonobsk’s most prominent Great House, it does not seem likely that she will be able to keep that vow. Yet Lara is fortunate. She falls in love with a prince of Varonobsk, and he with her. She can marry both for love and for political advantage.
But through her gift of overhearing random thoughts Lara is warned that her dreamed-of future will not be so easily realized. Her journal entries portray the dangerous path she follows.
