"History has produced few women as fascinating as the auburn-haired beauty, Emma, Lady Hamilton, who captured the heart of England's greatest admiral, Lord Nelson. Warmhearted, impulsive, amoral, she distributed her favors generously, mistaking gratitude and affection for love, rising with each of her "protectors" to her ultimate position of power in the glittering court at Naples-until she at last met the one man she was to love intensely and forever. If ever two lovers were destined for each other, they were Emma Hamilton and Horatio Nelson, that passionate, brilliant woman, and that dynamic, heroic man."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
