BARBARA FLYNN's only skills are embroidery and being a snob, and living in Victorian India that all she needs. But when 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 fight for their survival.
Lieutenant ANGUS FERGUSON, the only survivor from a Scotsman regiment, has only one duty: keeping the civilians alive in desperate circumstances. The last thing he needs is the complication of a woman that he cares for.
In a place where death could strike at any moment, and a time when physical love is forbidden: Passion should be the furthest thing from anyone's mind.
