Description: Neither kink nor curse can stop a woman with a mission. Cecily Harrowsmith, secret agent extraordinaire, is a woman on a mission. When the remote Indian kingdom of Rajasthan refused to remit its taxes to the Empire, Her Majesty imposed an embargo. Deprived of the energy-rich mineral viridium, essential for modern technology and development, Rajasthan was expected to quickly give in and resume its payments. Yet after three years, the rebellious principality still has not knuckled under. Cecily undertakes the difficult journey to the rugged, arid land of the Rajputs to determine how it has survived, and convince the country to return to the Empire’s embrace. Instead, she’s taken captive by a brigand and delivered into the hands of the sexy but sadistic Rajah Amir, who expertly mingles torture and delight in his interrogation of the voluptuous interloper. Cursed before birth , the ruler’s half-brother, Pratan, changes to a ravening wolf whenever the moon is full. Cecily uncovers the counter-spell that can reverse the effects of the former queen’s hex and tries to trade that information for her freedom. Drawn to the fierce wolf-man and sympathising with his suffering, she volunteers to serve as the sacrifice required by the ritualoffering her body to the beast. Cecily must accomplish the task entrusted to her by the Empire. But can she bear to leave the virile half-brothers and their colourful land to return to her life in England?Amazon
