An Italian diva, an American engineer, a violent British officer, a family of Boers and an Egyptian prince and princess round out the eclectic cast of characters in this tale of love, diamonds, war and intrigue.

Civil War veteran and engineer Jack Tarboro is smitten with diva Eleanora Rizzo from the moment he sees her and she returns his feelings, but their relationship is not destined to be easy.

While the two romance each other, British Lieutenant Andre Cumerford cozies up to them to help forward his nefarious assassination scheme and a journalist with ulterior motives plots to exploit a certain diva's likeness to an Egyptian queen.

The final ingredient to this tumultuous tale is a business arrangement involving Jack, Andre, the Boers, the South African slave trade, diamonds and guns.
