Review:

"This rich and bouncy biography of a driven woman - mad for fashion, mad on passion - makes Posh look like a novice" (Good Housekeeping)

"Sparkling like Emma's pawned diamonds ... Finally makes us understand why Nelson needed to be prised out of Emma's embrace to fight Napoleon..." (Daily Mail)

"It is the thoroughness of the research and attention to detail that make Kate Williams' new biography of Emma Hamilton so interesting. The iconic Emma has been continuously reimagined since her lover Nelson's death, but Williams offers a new portrait" (The Independent)

"Kate Williams has done a wonderful job recreating the life of the woman she wants us to relate to...This is an immensely colourful, readable portrait that revels in Emma's resilience and her ability to surmount what look to us now to be unimaginable odds" (Independent on Sunday)

"Gallops along like a gripping novel, with an utterly believable and sympathetic character at its heart" (Chesire Life)

From the Publisher:

As a self-made celebrity, Emma Hamilton's rise from prostitute
to consort of the most famous man in England has a very contemporary zing
