Nicholas Saint-Just is known to all New Orleans as a lawless pirate, a wanton womanizer, and a murderer. Yet his plantation is the only security Eavin O'Flannery Dupre has ever known. Having lost both husband and child, she offers to take care of her niece--his motherless daughter--and run his plantation home, with the understanding that she never wishes to be touched by a man again.
But a bargain made with the devil is meant to be broken. As the hated British are poised to attack, Eavin discovers passion with a man who scorns love but desperately needs her understanding. Together, they fight their desires, their enemies, and each other, until circumstances force them to make terrible choices. In the maelstrom of war, can love find a way to their hearts?

I love this story! One of the first romantic books and i have searchd years to own it . I highly recomend it
Wow what a great book. So well written. Loved the characters and it had so much going on. It always makes me sad when I read about how slaves were treated in this country. That was a very strong message with Eavin treating the blacks as real people. Very proud to read of her strong character. Wonderful book I just can't rave enough!!! I will have to read more by her!!!
I love Ms. Rice's novels. They are mostly great reads. Their lengths are ejoyable and keep you in the story. But they all end, in my opinion, somewhat abruptly, with no sequel to know happens to the original characters. Lots of time write amazing stories, but little thought to ending.
