A tragic action-romance featuring Barbara Flynn, fifty years before the events of the Maliha Anderson series
BARBARA FLYNN's only skills are embroidery and being a snob. She and her nagging mother find themselves in the middle of a terrible siege without even a change of clothes. With the threat of painful death on all sides she must fend for herself and her mother.
Lieutenant ANGUS FERGUSON, of the British Army has only one duty: keeping the civilians alive in terrible circumstances. As the only survivor from a Scotsman regiment he is driven to succeed.
Set in Indian in 1857 this is a powerful, tragic tale of love, lust and loss in a Victorian world that is slightly different to the one we know. In a place where death could strike at any moment and physical love is forbidden. Passion should be the furthest thing from anyone's mind.
