Her ravishing beauty, and innocent charm made her easy prey for Ksian Fu, the decadent Manchu prince whose enflamed passion could not be denied.Trapped in an alien culture with its ever shifting struggles for power, Constance is soon prey to the corrupt schemings of a ruthless empress. Constances own fate becomes precarious amidst the conflicts of war and rebellion. Finally, in the arms of a daring American officer, Constance finds the peace she has dreamed of...and the true love that has long escaped her.
