All is Fair in Love . . .
She was a condesa now. But once, not long before, a man who loved her had thought her a waterfront harlot.
New Orleans - 1855.
Beautiful, red-haired Eleanora Villars had returned home in triumph—angel of mercy to the wounded Americans in Nicaragua, heroine of the wars in Central America, widow of a titled Spanish nobleman. She was rich. She was adored. She was a woman of consequence. She was the talk of 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.
