The wealthy, aristocratic Portuguese Conde Duarte Andre Volante de Taviro Mauredo was virtually the ruler of the tropical island of Torassa; his word was law and he expected everyone to jump to his bidding. So when Laura Conroy went there under false pretences she had certainly started off on the wrong foot! And so the sparks were ready to fly between the two of them-and fly they did. Dem Duarte made it plain that he didn't trust her -and the situation wasn't helped by the mischief-making of the haughty Dona Eduarda de Manso, who was going to marry him. Which made things very difficult for Laura even before she find herself falling love with him...
