Some of the elements of the story were wonderful: the lost splendor of the jungle mansion, the mystical love story, death by sword, army ants attacking, and the hero, Salvador, who is so incredibly endearing, despite his Latin jealousy. Plus, you get to revisit Wolf and Storm of "Love, Cherish Me." I have never heard of a writer doing that in a non-serial work. There are some disturbing events that are nauseatingly awful, but the world isn't rosy. It is a memorable read, and I really love the cover of the first edition the best. Why they changed it, I don't know-- I hope to find another copy of it someday.
A romance novel that has elements of a mystery.
In faraway Spain Aurora's fortune was foretold--the exile from the home of her aristocratic ancestors, the journey to the steaming jungles of Peru, and at last the love of a fiery dark man.
Now on a plantation haunted by a tale of lost love and hidden gold, the raven-tressed beauty awaits the swordsman and warrior she has seen in her dreams. Will he come--and protect her from the enemies that seek to destroy her? Will he love her with the promised passion--wilder than the tropic storms and brighter than the most precious treasure?
I love Brandewyne's books. The characters stand out and feel "real", good plots, great storyline.
