Imprisoned by a corrupt maharajah in the torrid climes of 1910 India, Sarabande battles the maharajah’s lust and another man’s passions, all while desperately trying to regain her memory. She has forgotten her perilous adventures in both love and fortunes, but her intrepid spirit remains as she encounters jealousy in the harem, man- and woman-eating crocodiles, venomous snakes, all in her attempts at escape her prison. Her defender in every potentially fatal situation is, surprisingly, the rajah, brother to the sadistic maharajah. Rami is all the maharajah is not: handsome and muscular, graceful, intelligent, and compassionate, a fitting challenge to Sary’s spirit, a man well educated and well-travelled in the world. But the real question is whether he can overcome his brother’s hold on power and survive while loving Sary.
