Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0961637781, Paperback)

This is an historical romance set in antebellum Louisiana. His heroic rescue of a beautiful Creole of color from a fire leads to a passionate first love for Emile de Marigny, heir to Marengo, one of the largest sugar cane plantations in Louisiana. But when he is called up for service in the War against Mexico, his father insists on an arranged marriage for his son, with a suitable French Creole, to secure the inheritance of Marengo. Will it be flight to Paris with his beloved Nana, and the loss of his inheritance -- or wealth, status and two women? How will this love triangle be resolved? This book is the first in a series of historical novels which continue the story of the Emile de Marigny family through the Civil War and beyond.
