back of cover:
Teresa Garcia-Lorca's blond hair and blue eyes belie her Criolla heritage: she is the favored daughter of El Gato Negro, the infamous Mexican revolutionary...until the truth of her paternity throws him into a murderous rage and Teresa must flee for her life. Her only hope is to make her way to Rancho La Reina, the home of her real father, Bill Burkhart. There her innocence is shattered, for her sheltered Mexican upbringing never prepared her for the treachery of gringo greed.
Judy Burkhart is a stunning, willful beauty who has everything - and every man she desires. Her world crumbles when she learns she is disinherited by her father's will, and discovers she is the bastard daughter of her mother's lover. Suddenly she must overcome her own worst impulses to fight for all she's lost - and for the only man who's ever loved her.
The competition between the two women begins with turbulent relations and confused identities, and it will not end before murder evens the score.
