In the sultry heat of a New Orleans summer, Skye Cameron sees Justin Law for the first time and knows immediately that she will either love him or hate him--no woman could ever be indifferent to such a man. Warned against this tall, intense man who has been in jail for murder, Skye nevertheless is drawn to him in a way she cannot explain. Persuaded by her family to marry Justin's respectable brother Courtney, Skye tries desperately to put thoughts of Justin out of her head and ignore the feelings she has for him. But even if she could, it would not be enough. For Justin Law is a man willing to fight for what he wants...and what he wants is Skye.

A very early Phyllis Whitney story(1957). Well-told historical romance taking place in 1880 in New Orleans and centering around Creole families of the time. The love story was engrossing and the twists and turns of the plot made it worth reading. Read full review

About the author (1957)

Phyllis A. Whitney moved around quite a bit during her youth, from Japan to China, the Philippines, and the United States. Her first novel, for adolescents, was A Place for Ann (1942). Winner of the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America, Whitney mixes an intriguing blend of mystery and romance that has kept her fans happy for many years. Often her stories have the feel of Gothic thrillers, with brooding castles and old family secrets hidden away. Often her protagonists are strong, even liberated, women who are intent on uncovering the mysteries. Whitney, who loves writing, strives to create escapist plots but balances them with realistic female characters with whom her readers can identify.
