English diplomat Ian Prescott, the Marquess of Griffith, arrives in India on a secret mission to head off a war and ends up helping Lady Georgiana Knight rescue a young widow from a funeral pyre. Independent-minded Georgie has immersed herself in the Indian culture she loves and doesn't trust Ian not to destroy her adopted country. But the instantaneous sexual attraction she feels for him can't be denied.

Ian must complete his mission to keep the kingdom of Janpur as a British ally. He can't afford to be distracted by lust for Georgie, but he can't resist. When she follows him to Janpur and becomes entangled in his mission -- by exposing the king's first wife as a traitor -- they are forced to flee India and marry. But danger stalks them in London. An Indian assassin and rumors about Ian's past threaten to shatter the happiness they've found. (Ballantine, Apr., 450 pp., $7.99)
