New Orleans 1855: -
She was a condesa now. But once, not long before, a man who loved her had thought her a waterfront harlot.
Beautiful, red-haired Eleanora Villaars had returned home to New Orleans in triumph. She was an angel of mercy to the wounded Americans in Nicaragua, a heroine of the wars in Central America, a widow of a titled Spanish nobleman. She was rich. She was adored. She was a woman of consequences. She was the talk of all New Orleans.
Only one man knew the truth about Eleanora. Colonel Grant Farrell. But it did not matter. He was obsessed by her. Even though she hated him, he had sworn he would one day make her love him in return.
