Has the feel of an epic, with a tense, involved plot. The story centers around "the ruby", a significant Ceylonese tea plantation, a tortured hero and heroine,a truly despciable villain and a cast of supporting characters out of central booking. Lots of intrigue, set in the glorious beauty of Ceylon jungles with some truly vicious twists and turns. Several kinds of sizzle.

I first read Skye in 2010 and loved her Code Name series. This is a "sweeping saga" romance from the early '90s and not my cup of tea. It has foggy London streets, mistaken identity, amnesia, kidnapping, rescues, rape, exotic jungle locales, questions of birthright, a mysterious ruby, and a cast of characters to support it all. If you're looking for 500+ pages in your next romantic read, this may fit the bill. Just be forewarned that it's from the "no means yes" era of romance writing.
