The Indian stood naked in the sunlight.
To the world, he is the half-breed Luiz Quintano. But to Amy Sullivan, he is Tonatiuh, the magnificent son of a Spanish grandee and an Aztec princessâ€”and she has worshipped him since girlhood. After five years at a New Orleans finishing school, Amy is finally coming home to her familyâ€™s sprawling Texas ranchâ€”and the man she loves. Until a night of passionate reunion erupts in shattering violence, forcing them to part as bitter enemies.
Tonatiuh has waited a decade to take his revenge on the family who almost succeeded in destroying him. His triumphant return as the feared military commander El CapitĂˇn is only the first step in his plan. But after he makes Amy his captive, he once again falls prey to her sensual charms. As passion reignites, Tonatiuh is consumed by the need to reclaim the woman who betrayed him, the woman he will hateâ€”and loveâ€”for the rest of his life.
