HE WAS HER FIRST LOVE.
Susanne L'Anjeau had been fourteen, and Bart Stone, twenty-four. Back then Susanne's Louisiana family had been wealthy, and Bart, a rough Creole lad, was the son of a servant and had courted her sophisticated older sister.
Now, ten years later, the tables are turned. Bart is the rich one, and the L'Anjeaus are losing their shrimp boat.
But when the dashing Bart suddenly reappears and again pursues her sister, Susanne's heart twists with torment. Her old teenage crush has blossomed into a woman's passion -- and a love that may never be returned.
