From the author of Swan Bride comes this historical romance about two soul mates, destined to love in an island paradise where no passions are forbidden, and the exotic quest that separates them.
Married to fulfill her father’s desperate deathbed plea, Lilith is wed in name only to Adam Dunraven, a dashing British explorer.
For years, reclusive Lilith has secretly loved this reckless adventurer who lived out her fantasies in the farthest reaches of the globe. Yet, even after they married, he left her, still virginal and unkissed, to begin another long journey.
Adam honored his friend’s dying wish to marry Lilith, but he never removed the veil that covered her face, nor had he wished to bed her…
With his sights set on a distant horizon, Adam is blinded by the fate that swept him toward a ritual of fire and passion, and the beguiling temptress testing his honor and heart with her undying desire for his love.
