Read full description of the books The Emerald Peacock:INDIA... A LAND OF PASSION AND DANGER, LOVE AND BETRAYAL
They eloped to an exotic palace high in the majestic hills. Bianca O'Neil, a beautiful Irish girl and Sher Khan, the passionate Prince of Tigers, ruler of Lambagh, and heir to the Peacock Throne.
It was a turbulent passion... shadowed by treachery and greed, consumed by the flames of rebellion that swept the country and ultimately challenged by enemies who coveted the emblem of Sher Khan's power--the rare and wondrous jewels of... THE EMERALD PEACOCK.
