At the end of the Victorian era, Orchid Mania has gripped the wealthy and aristocratic men of England. Collectors are willing to spend a small fortune to obtain the rare flowers from distant lands. Lord Holloway, president of the Royal Horticultural Society in London, has decided to finance an expedition team to Ceylon to capture one of the rarest orchids on earth.
Frances Wakefield is an educated woman and a gifted illustrator and has traveled throughout Europe documenting various plants and flowers for the Society. When she is handpicked by Lord Holloway to travel to Ceylon as a member of the expedition team, she is thrilled.
When she arrives in Egypt to meet the other members of the team, she comes face-to-face with Miles St. Clair, Lord Holloway’s son and heir. He is the arrogant, handsome, insufferable man she encountered at several soirees in London and the team’s leader.
As the team scours Ceylon searching for the orchid, someone has been watching Lord Holloway’s team intent on securing the orchid for themselves at any cost. As the team gets closer to finding the orchid, a growing attraction intensifies between Miles and Frances. As the danger increases, the couple must work together to evade the threat and escape Ceylon alive.
