Annotation New Orleans, 1867. When thugs destroy the school she is setting up to teach freed slaves, Valinda Lacy needs help from Captain Drake LeVeq. Drake, an architect from an old local family with a deep interest in rebuilding the city, is drawn to Valinda.
"Valinda Lacy's mission in the steamy heart of New Orleans is to help the newly emancipated community survive and flourish. But soon she discovers that here, freedom can also mean danger. When thugs destroy the school she has set up and then target her, Valinda runs for her life -- and straight into the arms of Captain Drake LeVeq. As an architect from an old New Orleans family, Drake has a deeply personal interest in rebuilding the city. Raised by strong women, he recognizes Valinda's determination. And he can't stop admiring -- or wanting -- her. But when Valinda's father demands she return home to marry a man she doesn't love, her daring rebellion draws Drake into an irresistible intrigue."
