it to the dogs! Do as I say or by Christ I'll do it myself and throw
you in after it!'
Tyler Cadell's cruel order spells heartbreak for his wife Garnet and
their new-born baby. She flees to save herself, but cannot save her
child and the memory of that tragic loss haunts her days.
Taken in by a band of Black Country Romanies, Garnet is touched by the
warmth and generosity of the gypsy people, even if not all of them offer
her an equally charitable welcome. Although loved by their leader, Judah
Kane, Garnet moves on once she has regained her strength and determines
to take revenge on her husband.
Meanwhile Tyler has assumed the role of grieving widower in order to
ally his fortune with that of Lady Olivia Denton: the reappearance of
his legal wife would be a major inconvenience. Indulging his voracious
sexual appetite with the sensual gypsy girl, Marisa, Tyler learns of
Garnet's whereabouts and determines to be rid of her once and for all...
