Determined to prove her worth as a budding archaeologist
Ginesse Braxton vows to solve one of the world’s greatest mysteries—to find the
location of the lost city of Zerzura. Unfortunately, no man dares take the risk
of escorting an unwed young lady across the open desert. But on her way to
Egypt, Ginesse engages in a daring deception—she will switch places with
Mildred Whimpelhall, who is traveling to meet her fiancé, an officer posted
deep in the Sahara.
Years before, cynical adventurer Jim Owen disappeared from
his former life to escape the dark secrets of a troubled past. Betrayed by the
woman he loved and scorned by proper society, he agrees to carry out a
danger-fraught task: escort Mildred Whimpelhall across a lawless desert to her
intended. But Jim is about to learn that “Mildred” isn’t exactly what she
seems…and the dangers they face together are eclipsed only by an even greater
peril: falling in love, against all reason, with another guy’s bride.
