Milady de Winter finally has a voice...
You've heard of me, I know. Milady de Winter, lovely and deadly nemesis of the Three Musketeers. I am a spy, assassin, poisoner, seductress – the femme fatal who uses her beauty to bring men to their knees. I'm remembered as a notorious villain.
That's because men have written my story.
Villains are made, not born. I began life as Clarice, a simple Yorkshire lass. My idyllic youth was shattered when I was sent to the licentious court of King James of England. Tangled in a web of treachery, I had no choice but to shed my innocence. A girl must survive, after all. A sacrifice for love led to a cascade of events that took me from a brutal French convent to the bed of a Musketeer.
Through my trials I grew ever more deadly with poison and the blade, with my clever tongue and cunning lies. But those skills can be used for good as well as evil. Which do you think I chose?
I've been judged by the Musketeers, and by the executioner. Now it is your turn to judge me.
