A WOMAN FOR HER TIME
Celine Morand, a titled beauty raised in the dazzling splendor of Napoleon's court, lived a glittering life of luxury. Her marriage to handsome Henri Morand seemed blessed, but Celine harbored a secret sorrow, one that threatened to destroy her one last chance for happiness.
When Henri arranged a visit to his cousin's Louisiana plantation, Celine hoped the trip would save her struggling marriage. But after the Morands arrived at Beaux Ombres, a lush plantation deep in the sultry bayous, she found herself an unwilling participant in her ruthless husband's plan to secure an heir to the Morand name. It was only when Celine discovered unexpected passion with another man that she realized there could be no true happiness without love, a love she had to sacrifice.
