An exotic flower from a faraway land, Celia came to London to become a proper English rose-a wide-eyed innocent, newly awakened by womanhood's kiss ...vet burning with a sensuous heat inflamed by gypsy blood. To one she is promised-a mail of wealth and power and property. Yet another will own her heart.
He is Grant Hamilton, a daring and unpredictable American rogue who senses a kindred spirit in the stunning, copper-eyed beauty whom he has agreed to escort through London's social whirl. Yet Grant is determined to resist his own secret yearnings for the exquisite enchantress. For there is danger in a love that can know no bounds--and in a passion that could only lead to shattering ruin ...or ecstasy.
