Lovely, widowed kaatje de St. Benoit feared for her life at the hands of colonel Becket Thorne-the handsome, determined British soldier who demanded that she lead him to his sworn enemy, the ruthless Turk, El Muzir.
For seven long years, hatred ruled the rugged Englishman's heart. But Thorne's lust for vengeance was overwhelmed by his fevered need for the tempestuous Flemish beauty he dared not trust. Kaatje's fiery spirit and blistering sensuality set the forces of duty and desire warring within Thorne's troubled soul. And in a world of danger and devastating betrayal, he would risk everything for a passion he could never conquer...and a bold breathtaking love he could never deny.
