To Miranda Collins, daughter of the British governor, India is a land full of exotic adventure. Her ability to sense the pain in others-and help them overcome it-has bound her to the people and animals of the country she loves. But then the idyllic life she's known since childhood is shattered by her beloved father's murder and the repeated attempts made on her own life. When Lord James Grayson arrives in Calicut, he is instantly captivated by the golden-eyed beauty, and determined to save her from harm. Miranda quickly rebuffs James' offer of matrimony-convinced that her strange powers would never be accepted back in England. But after another brush with treachery, Miranda agrees to a marriage in name only, so long as the union is annulled once her father's killer is found. Then she can safely return to India. Once in England, though, Miranda finds herself consumed by her desire for James-unaware that evil has followed her footsteps...and suddenly threatens to tear her from the man who has touched her very soul. This is a great book. Miranda is an awesome character. Ms. Grace done an excellent job in creating this marvelous herorine. And James is any woman's dream come true. Loved all the exotic wildlife and all the intrigued. Kept me on the edge of my seat till the end.
