During a short but incredible life, Lola Montez transformed herself from middle-class British daughter to notorious adventurer, attracting admirers and scandal wherever she went. This highly entertaining biography uncovers the real story of one of the best-known women of the Victorian era -- a dancer and actress, a power behind thrones, and a mistress to important men over four continents.

"A fantastic yarn.... We are ... grateful to be in the hands of an enthusiastic chronicler who has applied his talents to be bewitching subject". -- Hannah Pakula, New York Times Book Review

"An amazing story of a peerless adventuress, told with great verve". -- Independent on Sunday

"Seymour's narrative of Lola's various masquerades is so absorbing that the reader rarely has the time to wonder where he has mined his information....Superb reading". -- Flora Fraser, The Times (London)

"Bruce Seymour's Lola Montez...seems destined to become the definitive modern biography". -- Faye E. Dudden, Journal of American History

"It is tragicomedy with Bruce Seymour has researched in exhaustive detail, showing Lola at her most fractious, selfish, deceitful, demanding, silly and unlikable... Without sentimentalising his subject, he shows her deepening and changing". -- Alan Judd, Sunday Telegraph

"The best part of Bruce Seymour's biography is its richly detailed background....Mr. Seymour's gift for social and cultural history is an enjoyable and instructive constant amid the wear and tear of his subject". -- Florence King, Washington Times

"This is bedside reading of a high order". -- Ian McIntyre, The Times (London)
