Tempting Fate

Chelsea Quinn Yarbro

St. Martin's Press

Austria during the 1920s is the setting for the fifth of Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's novels about the elegant and mysterious Count Ragoczy Saint-Germain.  In Tempting Fate, the Count becomes guardian to a spirited and talented young girl named Laisha, a Russian war orphan.  Traveling frequently to the great cities of Europe, the pair move in a world whose days are numbered, as the landed nobility of Europe face the shocks of the future.  Saint-Germain must come to the aid of three women: a Russian duchess who has to make a new life for herself in Paris after the revolution, a  beautiful young widow who sees her family fortune squandered and her centuries-old home menaced by a new order of violence, and Madelein de Montaila, the entrancing Frenchwoman who shares Saint-Germain's long memory and his secret.
After a horribly cruel crime, Saint-Germain decides on a desperate course of action that could lead, even for him, to a lasting death.  Tempting Fate is the richest, most passionate, and most poignant of the Saint-Germain series.
