In the late 1600s, the legendary Spanish Dowry vanished when Black Maggie Verrere eloped with a stranger rather than marrying Sir Eric Neville. Now it is 150 years later, and Cassandra Verrere is desperate to find the riches in order to save her family from poverty. Unfortunately, only a Neville can help her. Clearly, he considers his hatred of her as much his birthright as the dowry is hers--but even an ancient family feud is no match for the passion that soon burns between them.

Orphaned, with no acceptable marriage prospects, and in desperate need of money to support her twin brothers and sister, Cassandra Verrerre hopes to convince Sir Phillip Neville to help her find the long-lost Spanish Dowry. More than a century ago, Cassandra's ancestor Margaret jilted her fiancé at the altar. Her dowry, a treasure in gold and jewels, disappeared. Now Cassandra has reason to think that by finding some letters and a coded map she can recover the treasure and restore her family's financial independence. But she doesn't count on falling for Phillip, a man whose sensual expertise leads her to persistently mistrust him. The efforts of Cassandra's coquettish cousin to trap the wealthy Phillip in marriage add humor to this intriguing treasure hunt in which the greatest discovery is, of course, love. --Ellen EdwardsAbout the Author:
