SINFUL AND SENSUAL, STEAMING WITH PASSION...A SAGA OF THE SIX PLANTATION FAMILIES OF MAGNOLIA LANDING
1830. Upriver from wicked, whirling New Orleans lies Magnolia Landing, a fabled place of power, privilege and passion. Here every taboo is spurned, every rule broken in the name of lust. Here ambition is as sweet and raw as the sugar cane on which the wealthy plantations thrive.
To this hothouse of Deep South charm and illicit desire comes riverboat gambler Royal Brannigan, a man as determined as he is devastating. In his pocket is a document that will forever change Magnolia Landing - the deed to one of the six plantations, to all its land, crops and slaves.
But with the plantation comes two other prize possessions, the lovely young widow Suzanne Jourdain and her equally beautiful sister-in-law, Angelique.
Driven by conflicting passions each woman vows to conquer the handsome intruder in her own way - and to bring him under her power by love, blackmail, or even murder.
