Does forever lie in the lion’s embrace?

Arrogant, selfish and dangerous, Lucas Saintclair is everything Harriet Montague dislikes in a man. He is also the best guide in the whole of the Barbary States and the only man who can rescue her archaeologist father, from kidnapping by a gang of Tuareg fighters.

As Harriet embarks on a perilous journey across Algeria with Saintclair and Archibald Drake, her father’s most trusted friend, she discovers a bewitching but brutal land where nothing is what it seems.

Who are the men intent on stealing her father’s ransom? What was her father hoping to find in Tuareg Queen Tin Hinan’s tomb? Is Lucas Saintclair really as callous as he claims – or is he a man haunted by a past he cannot forgive?

In the heat of the Sahara, dangerous passions engulf Harriet. Secrets of lost treasures, rebel fighters, and a sinister criminal brotherhood threaten her life and the life of the man she loves.

The realistic, matter-of-fact storytelling will suck you into Sam's world and you'll find yourself absorbed by the suspense and mystery of his obsession. It's not so much about the goal, it's about his struggle of self and purpose, as he seeks an elusive path to success and redemption.
As you hike along in his dusty boots, you'll begin to wonder to yourself, how far would you go to feed your fever?
