Now Sherry delivers this powerful story of a remarkable woman and the love she thought she'd never find--with the man she thought she'd lost forever....
    Their marriage lasted only slightly longer than the honeymoon--to no one's surprise, not even Bryony Asquith's.

Why, then, three years after their annulment and half a world away, does he track her down at her clinic in the remotest corner of India?
    Leo has no reason to think Bryony could ever forgive him for the way he treated her, but he won't rest until he's delivered an urgent message from her sister--and fulfilled his duty by escorting her safely back to England. But as they risk their lives for each other on the journey home, will the biggest danger be the treacherous war around them--or their rekindling passion?
