Born to a Scottish father and a Chinese mother, Troth

Montgomery dreamed of someday traveling to Scotland, until the death of her father condemned her to a shadowy life as an interpreter in Canton.

Then Kyle Renbourne, viscount and adventurer, discovers Trothís true identity and persuades her to be his guide on a dangerous journey into the heart of the Celestial kingdom.

A meeting of minds flares into searing passion,

an idyll that ends when Kyle is captured and condemned

to death. A reckless prison cell marriage the

night before his execution sends Troth to England, where she

arrives at the estate of Kyleís brother. Though

accepted as bride and widow, she is haunted by the

memory of her dashing husband. Then the past

reaches out to Troth, bringing passion, despair, and

danger. Now she must draw on her unique heritage

to save all she holds dearóand become the woman

she is destined to be.
