1816. A massive volcanic eruption has caused the worst storms that Europe has seen in decades, yet Percy and Mary Shelley have chosen to visit the infamous Lord Byron at his villa on Lake Geneva. It wasn't their idea: Mary's eighteen year old step-sister, Claire Clairmont, insisted. But the reason for Claire's visit is more pressing than a summer escape with the most famous writers in the world. She's pregnant with Byron's child - a child Byron doesn't want, and scarcely believes is his own. Claire has the world in her grasp. This trip should have given her everything she ever dreamed of. But within days, her life will be in ruins. History has all but forgotten her story - but she will not be silenced.… (mere)

Claire Clairmont is not her stepsister. She's not a talented writer, she's not married to a famous poet, she's the lover of great men. In 1816 Percy Shelley, his wife Mary and her sister Claire descend on Lake Geneva to visit Lord Byron. The famous rake has abandoned his wife and child and escaped debt and notoriety in England. Now Claire has come under his seductive influence and she is pregnant with his child. Tragedy strikes and Claire falls from sensual highs to having to make her own way in the world.

I did like the idea of this story, the young Claire becomes sexually aware and the plaything for two of the greatest poets of their age. The story shifts between Claire as a young teenager, Claire working in Russia and Claire in Paris and the thread that runs through is the idea that Claire was a muse to heroes and a fallen woman as well. I actually found the scenes with Byron rather disturbing, they felt more like abuse than love but this is a well-written book. ( )
