Written by Barbara Cartland
Admired by men and adored by women, a raffishly handsome adventurer and ladies’ man, the Duke of Darleston is known to all as The Dasher’ after his father’s successful horse of the same name. And yet in his heart he yearns for something more in his life and he is suddenly compelled to gather some friends together to travel to Egypt to witness its ancient wonders and glorious Temples. Among the party is the coquettish recently bereaved beauty Lady Lily Cairns, who is determined to ensnare the Duke. And sure enough he is instantly captivated by her calculated charms until Fate intervenes. At the Temple of Luxor, the Duke is transfixed by a beautiful young woman, at once a stranger and yet somehow strangely familiar. All thought of Lily is gone as the lovely Irisa Garron, for that is her name, elevates him spirituality in a mystic meeting of minds and of hearts and souls. Suddenly they know that they are eternally bound together and that they were lovers in another previous life in Egypt and in many other lives as well And now Fate has drawn them together once more on the banks of the Nile, the Eternal River of Love.
