“The Nile, the white fountains of the Nile!”
Her father’s last words haunt Harriet Latimer long after he has died and she has been rescued from the Nubian desert they had been attempting to cross. Her rescuer, the devastatingly handsome Raoul Beauvais, is a French explorer with the same objective – to find the source of the Nile. Despite Harriet’s repeated requests Raul swears that women have no place on his expedition. So why does he make an exception for the beautiful Circassian, Narinda? And how can Harriet realise her father’s dream and travel where no European woman has ever travelled before?
