Hollywood, 1946. When Nancy Valentine meets the dashing crown prince of Cooch Behar, sparks fly almost instantly. Sporty-as she lovingly nicknames him-is like nobody the beautiful young actress has ever met before. She is swept away to Sporty’s kingdom in India just as the country is caught up in a tumultuous freedom struggle. And before she knows it, Nancy is entangled in a whirlwind of intrigue, espionage, and attempted murder.

Sporty comes under great pressure from his elegant and formidable mother, who believes his marriage to a foreigner will weaken the family’s position with their people-and make them vulnerable to a government takeover. Amid growing opposition to the couple’s union, the state’s fabled Mughal Ruby disappears, and its curse will shadow them all.
