'Scorching and tempestuous.' - EVENING STANDARD. A sequel to MAVREEN. Tamarisk, daughter of a French Vicomte and the exquisite Mavreen, had inherited her mother's beauty - and her reckless, sensuous nature. It was almost inevitable that she would be drawn in a passionate attachment to Mavreen's former lover. But Sir Peregrine thought of Tamarisk only as a child. Humiliated at his rejection, Tamarisk offered herself to a notorious poet. Throughout the disgrace that followed, her love still burned for Peregrine, the man whose dangerous secret she had uncovered - the secret he shared with her rival - Mavreen.
