Overview

Amid the exotic splendor of historic India comes a sweeping tale of desire and duty …

Shamsi, a beautiful but penniless entertainer, is haunted by a childhood tragedy that changed her life. She hides behind silken veils, praying to escape the desires of men. And keeps her secret close to her heart.

Lord Karim, military advisor to the emperor, is bound to put duty above all else, even the desires of his heart. Though he loves Shamsi, his soul-mate, she is destined for another. The man Karim serves. It is not the only obstacle to their union.

Shamsi is Hindu, a commoner. Karim is a Christian nobleman. Shamsi is Rajput; Karim a Moghul. And he hides a secret of his own.
