From the Back Cover
From shipwreck on a desert island, to the cloistered and exotic intrigues of the harem of a Turkish pasha, and a stately and secretive house in Cornwall, Rosetta finds her fate irrevocably linked with the lives of two men.
Lucas Lorimer is attractive, worldly and cynical. Simon Perrivale is a wanted man, a suspect in a much publicised murder case. By chance, they are country neighbours and, while visiting the crippled Lucas, Rosetta has the opportunity to prove Simon's innocence.
Her self-imposed mission is as dangerous as any bizarre adventure they have shared so far…
