With her stormy marriage at last behind her, Professor Dani Warren has found contentment is an expert in the study and preservation of antique textiles. Yet from the moment she touches an ancient piece of silk in Lhasa's Thieves Market, nothing in her safe, secure existence will ever be the same.
An ex-mercenary employed by a shadowy organization, Shane Crowe has fought battles both in the wilds of Asia and within his soul. Seeking a more peaceful life, he has taken a vow of celibacy. But his spiritual and physical worlds clash when his latest assignment brings him to the Far East - and to the lovely, fiercely independent woman who can lead him to Tibet's most sacred treasure.
Until the priceless silk is stolen and Dani and Shane become reluctant partners on a journey that takes them from the exotic mountains of Tibet to the shimmering beaches of Aruba, from Washington's corridors of power to the fog-shrouded islands of Vancouver . . . where one woman will be swept beyond the limits of desire - and one man must confront the deepest yearnings of his heart!
