Epigraph
God answers sharp and sudden on some prayers,
And thrusts the thing we have prayed for in our face,
A gauntlet with a gift in't. -- Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Dedication
To my wife, Anne, as always
First words
A slender hand armed with blood-red fingernails reached out from a narrow niche in the dimly lit corridor and dug into Miguel Cardiga's muscular thigh.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446516945, Hardcover)

Patricia Dennison's life is a chain of melodramatic events on the disastrous scale of the Titanic. Terrorists have executed her father on a passenger plane. She has inherited a multibillion-dollar empire that she doesn't want, & whose directors are plotting against her. The philanthropic doctor to whom she is engaged turns out to be gay. So she falls instead for a Portuguese bullfighter (who has just killed the husband of his last unfaithful lover). And so, with grandiose implausibility, the successive episodes crash one upon the next

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 14:02:56 -0400)

Two unlikely lovers, an orphaned American heiress and a Portuguese bullfighter, are brought together by a magnificent gray stallion.
