Back cover: Golden-haired heiress Arielle Duplantier had no time for romantic dalliance! She had made a solemn vow: to find the man who killed her twin brother and stole her beloved plantation, force the villain to pay for his crimes, and then make La Belle Riviere her own again. But when the Creole vixen fell from her horse in a storm and awoke in the powerful arms of a stranger, she could think of nothing but passion. The rugged buccaneer's first gentle kiss was warm and sweet, but when she felt his body straining against hers, she could not help but respond to his searing caress. Revenge would have to wait until she had surrendered to a night of loving with her mysterious rescuer...no mater what the morning might bring!
