Samara is a proud, fierce and deeply independent gypsy girl, feared by the local people who suspect she is capable of witchcraft. Used to living a lonely existence on the edge of the moorland, Samara fears nothing, and no one. But when pretty Dilys Linden asks her for a fortune reading, Samara finds herself embrolled in a series of events that will change her life forever . . . Sir Anthony Linden, in pursuit of his ward and her gypsy lover, blames Samara for their disappearance. Linden believes the couple have stolen a valuable ruby and forces Samara to accompany him on a long and hazardous journey to recover them. Travelling to Italy, where violence and danger abound, the attraction between them is impossible to deny, but can there be any future in a passion that crosses so many boundaries?
