The very first time they met, Prince Jibril captured Lady Syrah's thirteen-year-old heart. The second, ninteen-year-old Syrah kidnapped and deposited the prince in a coffin.
And that was just her first trick. Odorous bedpans, clever disguises, fainting maids, gold coins. All were part of Syrah's daring and brilliant strategy to restore her family's wealth and honor. Tantalizing kisses, forbidden embraces and heartfelt promises (and her brother's overzealous tall tales!) were not. Who was laughing now? So she freed Jibril. Then the prince vowed to discover and marry his outrageous abductress, and Syrah knew at last they'd laugh together.
