Chimera's Waltz by Bibi Brock Davis
ROYAL HARLEY IS DRIVEN TO SEEK ABSOLUTION for the evil he has committed, and approval from his dead father whom he never could please. He marries deplorably innocent young Tilda Ullmann and soon she understands the terrible mistake she has made. Royal, all charm and magnetism, is also an abuser. He finds he is unable to make a union with his bride because in his skewed mind she is saintly, unlike other women whom he sees as craven. It is at the turn of the last century when America went to war with Spain. To achieve his goal, Royal volunteers to join Teddy Roosevelt and his band of cowboys and playboys in Cuba, but finds himself instead serving in the Philippine Islands. Tilda joins him there and incites Royal's fury when she meets young Lieutenant Evan Winslow who soon declares his love for her. Royal doggedly pursues his quest to find redemption by some deed of valor, which ultimately takes him deep into the untamed Cordelliera jungle of Luzon where his hideous act of betrayal finally forces him to face himself and see what is there. Tilda comes to believe that she has found a way out of her entrapment. Full Synopsis
