The Allure of Allura Vinzeta

A damsel in distress story of the Baron Rostov series

by Roger B. White, Jr., copyright 2010

Although I didn’t know it when I first met her, Allura Vinzetta was one of the most notorious femmes fatales of my time. I would never have known her if Josif Stipanov—the eldest of my inner circle—had not gone to Venice.

But Allura’s story is really not my story. It is the story of Josif’s daughter Dragana.
