From a starving gypsy in Russia to an exotic demi-mondaine in Paris; from a countess in Bavaria to a sensation in New York; from a survivor in the western wilderness to a card shark in San Francisco -- such were the heights and depths of existence for Rhawnie.
Her wit, her cunning, her beauty, the sensuous delights she performs so well protect her even as they cause her agony and shame. For deep in her soul is a love for a man, a man who has brought her only degradation and heartbreak.
Wherever she goes, whatever she does, Rhawnie cannot escape Seth Garrett. The constant ache for his arms, the ever-present need for the fires of passion he alone can ignite, and his relentless pursuit of her have made her his prisoner. Across continents, fleeing danger and death, with despair a frequent companion, Rhawnie runs ... from this man ... from herself ... until she knows that with a love so powerful, a love so shameless, she can do nothing but surrender!
