The Rice Dragon

By Elizabeth Darrell

Torn between his desire and her dream . . .

A world of unconquerable desire is unleashed when the dashing Rupert Torrington walks into Harriet Deane’s life. Before Harriet can draw breath, Rupert sweeps her away from her cloistered life in London to the exotic brilliance of silk traders’ China.

But rumours of war haunt the fragile outpost of the British Empire, casting a shadow over their love. Inside the virile body of the man who is devoted to her burns the spirit of a soldier hell-bent on pursuing his savage destiny.

As the mysteries of the Orient entice Harriet deeper into the secret temple court, she is drawn ever closer to forbidden passion . . .

Elizabeth Darrell is the pen-name of Emma Drummond, born in 1931. Her father was a member of the British Army stationed in Hong Kong, where Drummond spent the early years of her life. As well as writing books, she worked in the Women’s Royal Army Corps. She is the bestselling author of many historical novels, as well as the acclaimed World War II trilogy At the Going Down of the Sun, And in the Morning and We Will Remember.
