She was the conqueror's greatest conquest; the beautiful princess who could deliver Mexico into his hands.
She was Dona Marina…Cortes called her his Lady of the Sea, the mistress and confidante who rode at his side while he ravaged her land…to Arturo Mondragon she was Malinche, the beautiful Indian girl whose face would haunt him the rest of his life…to the people of Paynala she was the chieftain's daughter who would one day rule, the whore who betrayed them.
From a remote Indian village to the lush green jungles of Mexico to the Silver Palaces of Moctezuma she aroused in the mighty Cortes the burning need she shared…to overwhelm and possess!
