Eighteen-year-old Kalinda is an unlikely candidate for even a servant’s position, let alone a courtesan or wife in the ancient Tarachand Empire. Her dream is to continue living in her Sisterhood’s temple. But a visit from the tyrant Rajah Tarek disrupts her life. Within hours, she is ripped from her home and ordered to fight for her place among the rajah’s 99 wives and numerous courtesans. Her only solace comes from the stoic but kind Captain Deven. Faced with the danger of a tournament to the death, Kalinda has only one hope for escape, and it lies in a forbidden power within her.
