She had the pride of a princess- and the hungers of a woman.
Beautiful young Adela Wynne was a woman divided. Her father had been Chinese royalty, her mother an American missionary. Now, after having finished her American education, Adela returned to a China where she was both prize and pawn in a vast struggle.
So many men wanted her- each for his own needs. Yuan, the ruthlessly strong warlord, who lusted first for her imperial heritage, then for her exquisite body. Osborne, the reckless English adventurer who used her as a plaything of twisted ambition. And her foster brother, Charles, whom she lured into her bed, then could not keep out of her heart...for never before had a lover filled her with such excitement.
Adela had the power to rule all Chine - but only wanted the one man she loved by her side.
