Tamarisk, daughter of the beautiful Mavreen and a French Vicomte has inherited her mother's exquisite beauty and her passionate, impulsive nature. But the two women are rivals. Tamarisk is irresistibly drawn to her mother's former lover, Sir Peregrine Waite. But he only sees her as a child and does not yield to her loving advances. Burning with fury and humiliation at his rejection, Tamarisk becomes involved with a notorious philanderer and finds herself plunged into disgrace and degradation. And despite the dangerous secret she had discovered, her love for Sir Peregrine remains.
