In the shadows of the Pyramids, she discovers ecstasy, torment...
and the fierce desires of a foreign prince.
Iris has lived an idyllic, sheltered life - born and raised in the "Little Palace:
- her family home in exotic Egypt. But when her wealthy archaeologist father
dies, his final wish is that she be sent to England to live with her aunt.
Determined to remain in her beloved home, Iris impulsively asks the mysterious
Prince Usref to marry her... little realizing that British diplomat Stephen Daltry will
soon arrive to sweep her off her feet!
Though every fibre of her being yearns to be with Stephen, her fear of Usref drives
her to a fateful decision. For now the insidious Prince wants her in all possible ways,
and he will stop at nothing, not even murder, to make her his lifelong slave!
