Maria Gonzales had hoped for a fresh start in the New World as a contessa's servant, far away from her old life as a tavern maid in Seville. That hope is shattered when a storm destroys the ship off the coast of Hispaniola. The lone survivor, Maria sees no harm in pretending to be the contessa and enjoying a little luxury for once in her life...especially if it brings her closer to the irresistibly attractive governor's aid, Carlos de Alameda. Dedicated to his career and to regaining his family's honor, Carlos has gone too long without the comforts of a woman. He instantly feels a powerful connection to the beautiful young survivor...and an overwhelming lust. Yet he also harbors suspicions about the contessa. First he will explore her body...then he'll uncover the truth...
