A Louisiana heiress is torn between two men as war looms on the horizon . . . The first in a sweeping trilogy by the USA Today–bestselling author.
As rumblings of secession begin in the south, New Orleans heiress Chantal Therrie is looking for a husband. Obligation drives her towards Lazare Galliard, the man who has it all, including wealth, power and passion. But Rafferty O’Brien, an Irish immigrant who has come to New Orleans to seek his fortune, has an impossible-to-resist drive, and is determined to get what he wants—including the beautiful—but out of reach—Chantal.
As a war brews between the states, Chantal will be fighting her own war between what her heart and her mind want . . .
“A story as big, sprawling, passionate, and seething with excitement and danger as New Orleans itself . . . A riveting tale.”—Romantic Times
