The Desert Flower

At seventeen, fiery Juliet Cameron fell passionately in love and married the perfect companion for the adventurous life she wanted to lead. Lord Ross Carlisle is handsome, dashing, and as eager to explore the world as she is. But social constraints and fear of an all consuming love that threatens to engulf her independent spirit send Juliet fleeing to the distant land where she was raised as a diplomat's child.

Now, a dozen years later, a gentleman's promise sends Lord Ross on a dangerous rescue mission to Central Asia--and to a shocking reunion with his long estranged wife. Warily they join forces to cross the merciless desert to Bokhara, where Juliet's army officer brother has been imprisoned. The fierce attraction that drew them together so many years before has never died. But if they succumb to passion, can either of them survive if they cannot heal their broken marriage?

Editorial Reviews

AllAboutRomance.com - Jean Wan
"...Sheer brilliance. [The] historical vibrancy and vitality bring to mind Dorothy Dunnett with a dash of Indiana Jones...Ms. Putney's descriptions convey both the romanticism and the harshness of the dunes and their nomads. Traveling with a desert caravan, Ross and Juliet talk and fight and laugh, sometimes as the only way out of a tight spot, and I loved every word of it. I also loved Ross... a true gentleman, and super, super hot. And Juliet was such a vital, complex woman."
