Raised by a ragtag group of tender-hearted sailors in 19th century Hyderabad, Antoinetta Manu has grown into a woman determined to sail her own course in life. But when her past and future collide with terrifying results, only one man can set her free.

American merchant, Darian St. Clair has come to India to find out the truth about the death of his stepfather's only child. What he finds is a woman he cannot live without.

Spanning two continents and two realms, Kismet's Angel is the story of two extraordinary mortals, one determined goddess, and a destiny that only true love can fulfill...

"Rich in emotion, romance, and adventure.... The author's melodic voice adds elegance and weight to the stormy tale of a woman's hidden destiny." --Shelby Reed, author of The Fifth Favor and Seraphim

"Ms. Brandon swept me away to a gilded land of Indian royalty and British occupation, then out to sea to battle pirates on the way to New Orleans and the War of 1812. Epic historical romance with just a touch of Kismet--perfect!"--Kelly McCrady, author of The Empire's Edge.
