Alessandra is a beautiful young woman of English heritage living in an Arabian palace. Her mother Sabine was sold into slavery when she was pregnant with Alessandra and she has never known any other life. But her mother wants her to return to England before she weds an Arab who will begin his harem with Alessandra. When Alessandra makes it clear she has no intention of going to England, Sabine creates a plan to force her to leave. Lucien de Gautier realizes his only chance to escape from slavery is to be a part of Sabine's plan. Sabine buys him and passes him off as a eunuch, instructing him to watch over Alessandra until they can escape. Lucien realizes the moment he sees Alessandra that he must have her, but he is torn between his duty to Sabine and the desire that burns in his soul. Despite his arrogant attitude, Alessandra feels something for Lucien that she has never felt for her betrothed. But when he finally kidnaps her she vows to fight the Englishman any way she can.
