We know her name. We know of her naked ride. We don’t know her true story. We all know the legend of Lady Godiva, who famously rode naked through the streets of Coventry, covered only by her long, flowing hair. So the story goes, she begged her husband Lord Leofric of Mercia to lift a high tax on her people, who would starve if forced to pay. Lord Leofric demanded a forfeit: that Godiva ride naked on horseback through the town. There are various endings to Godiva’s ride, that all the people of Coventry closed their doors and refused to look upon their liege lady (except for ‘peeping Tom’) and that her husband, in remorse, lifted the tax. Naked is an original version of Godiva’s tale with a twist that may be closer to the truth: by the end of his life Leofric had fallen deeply in love with Lady Godiva. A tale of legendary courage and extraordinary passion, Naked brings an epic story new voice. (St Martin’s Press, New York.)
Coming Soon … Lost voices. Lost lore. Lost love. Naked: A Novel of Lady Godiva is the first in a trilogy that brings back the story of a ‘Legendary Lady’ to tell it from her point of view and twist her tale. Who is the next Lady of Legend?

Londra, 1852 – Lady Catherine Mary St. Clair, detta Cameo, non intende certo darsi per vinta: anche se il famoso artista Benedict Cole ha rifiutato la sua richiesta scritta di impartirle lezioni di pittura, non saprà opporsi quando lei lo affronterà di persona. Una volta nel suo studio, però, l’uomo la scambia per una modella. Decisa a non lasciarsi sfuggire l’opportunità di imparare dall’ignaro maestro mentre posa, Cameo asseconda il malinteso e si finge una povera orfana. Tra l’artista e la sua musa si accende da subito una irresistibile attrazione, che presto, nonostante i loro sforzi per combatterla, prende vita in sguardi, baci, carezze e infine in una notte d’amore. Ma proprio quando Cameo è pronta a svelare la sua vera identità all’amante, il dipinto che la ritrae viene esposto a sua insaputa e il suo segreto scoperto… Potrà ancora essere la musa e l’amore di Benedict o lo perderà per sempre?

Peccato che alla giovane bastino pochi incontri per abbattere ogni pregiudizio del nobile e per farlo innamorare perdutamente. Ora che è un duca a voler sposare un’attrice, saprà farsi perdonare e conquistare il cuore della donna?
