Lost in a wager between her stepfather and the archaeologist Captain Ross Kilmarron, Stephanie Buchan is forced to marry the charismatic adventurer. Now, she must accompany him on an excursion to Arabia -- and the oasis empire of a desert prince. As Stephanie and Ross begin to unearth stunning treasures from the barren sands, the blistering sun sparks an overwhelming passion between them.
But Stephanie's cool beauty has also captivated Prince Hali Ahmed, who sees her as a sultry addition to his harem. Stephanie is enticed by all that Prince Hali's exotic desert kingdom has to offer, yet she cannot forget the sweet sensations Ross has kindled within her. And as Stephanie and Ross's desire for one another grows, so does Prince Hali's jealousy. For the prince has made a deadly vow to make Stephanie his. With the expedition and their lives in peril, Ross must risk his life for Stephanie, leaving her to wonder if their love will be buried forever... beneath the sands of time.
