Jean Ross runs for her life when mysterious creatures attack her camp in the remote Himalayas. Where are her friends, and who is this lunatic fanatic she comes across in her desperate flight to safety? He tells her his name is Shan, and he’s on a month-long quest to distant mountains. He’s not allowed contact with women, and he must carry all his supplies on his back, but one strange and dangerous event after another throws Jean into his path. They wind up traveling together into a world full of magic, mystery and passion.
Jean can’t decide if she likes Shan or hates him. He might be impossibly sexy with the body of a god. He might be overpoweringly, intoxicatingly hot in the sack, too. He’s commanding, conquering, possessive. Yep, she definitely hates him. So why does she keep falling under his spell? Why does she want to help him complete his quest against all odds? Is it really possible he can show her the way to a life sparkling with fulfillment, destiny, and new hope? Can Jean really accept a future as the hidden answer to a whole people’s hope for survival?
