A beautiful widow imprisoned in a tower. A dashing archaeologist searching for ancient treasure. When Lady Angelica Saxon is locked up in a lunatic asylum by her unscrupulous brother-in- law, she almost despairs. Until Mrs. Pringle, the marriage broker, finds Angelica a new husband to rescue her.
Thor Ericson is a scholar who dreams of traveling to Egypt in search of a lost tomb. All he needs is money. A marriage of convenience with the wealthy Lady Saxon is the answer to his prayers, but there’s a problem. Angelica’s first husband trained her to crave pain with her pleasure. Thor finds his beautiful wife irresistible. He doesn’t want to be her master, but her unusual passions incite his own. As they travel from England’s green shores to the burning sands of Egypt, Angelica and Thor complete a journey of discovery about each other.
Every mile draws them closer together, but their secrets threaten to tear them apart.
When danger threatens from all sides, and Angelica vanishes, Thor must conquer his ambition and follow his heart if he wants to save his wife. Or will he be too late?
