Historical Romance, Multi-cultural/Multi-racial Romance
Because of her… he believes in romance again. Captain Alan Tame is wrapping up the tail end of his commission in India. Just as he's convinced himself to return home to England and resume his life in Brighton, his gaze falls on an enchanting woman. He's captivated by one glance and the pursuit begins no matter that it's a crazy idea.
Because of him… her hope for the future is restored. Devi Derbyshire is the daughter of an Eng-lish military man and his Indian housekeeper. She knows exactly what she wants from life—a home, a family and the love of a good man. But her mixed heritage has clouded her options. One accidental glance across a ballroom gives her heart wings and her belly flutters.
Because of the magic of love… Alan cajoles Devi into a dance, and that one twirl about the floor leads to so much more. On a perfumed balcony, plans are made for an assignation in the court-yard, but before Devi can meet him, she's waylaid and locked in a tiny room, leading Alan to assume the worst. Only the belief in true love will see them through.
