Followers of Johnson's 19th-century romance Duras series will welcome the story of Pasha Duras, the Eurasian son of Teo and Andre Duras from "Taboo". Here, Pasha (who displays the usual romance-novel aversion to marriage) meets his lustful match in Lady Trixi Grosvenor when he rescues her. Trixi is relieved when Pasha discovers her; she is now free from captivity after a murderer kills the man who kept her prisoner. She has had nothing but bad luck with men and now wants nothing more than to return to her son in England. Her reason for initially coming to Paris was to attempt to claim her son's inheritance from his father's family, who refuse to acknowledge Chris is the legitimate heir to the Clouard family inheritance. Nothing short of murder will stop Jerome Clouard from preventing Chris from inheriting, not even the cost of a hired killer.

Pasha is swept away by this beautiful woman and finds himself escorting her back to England and showering her and Chris with gifts, which she is reluctant to accept. Passionate flames ignite almost immediately between the two and Pasha finds himself offering his assistance should she ever need his protection. Trixi was quick to succumb to the charm of Pasha and lust of her own, so quick that all claims of her naivety sounded quite hypocritical.

Upon his return to Paris, Pasha is drawn into the war in the effort to help Greece fight the Turks. Once again the Clouards come into Trixi's life and flush her and Chris from England. Reluctantly she flees to Paris in search of Pasha's help only to find out that he's involved in the war. Realizing that they aren't safe in Paris without Pasha she and Chris head for Greece and now become pawns for Pasha's enemy.
