Nicholas Fortune was a war-weary mercenary who had traveled around the world in search of a home. Raised in a New Orleans bordello, Nick had never belonged to any place or anyone. His only loyalty had been to himself until, amid the flames of revolution, he took another man's identity... and his wife.
Mercedes Alvarado was a half-English, half-Spanish heiress whose delicate golden beauty concealed a will of steel. She had survived the desertion of her husband, the scorn of his aristocratic family and the ravages of a civil war, holding together a magnificent estate until her soldier husband returned to claim it... and her.
The dark and dangerous man who rode home to that birthright touched her soul with a fiery need. He was the husband of her heart, but was he really Lucero Alvarado... or a stranger with her husband's face?
