Summary (From the publisher):

Seventeen-year-old Charlotte Drummond had lost her family's ancient Irish estate to a dashing, handsome young man named Richard Selwin. It might have marked the beginning of a fairytale come true -- for Charlotte fell in love with the new Lord Blodmore, and he with her. But he was married, and she was forced to flee the forbidden affair -- flee Ireland and the only home she had ever known, with no hope of return.

She would settle in the Spanish town of Jerez -- in a crumbling mansion her grandfather left her -- and there she would come of age among the proud, haughty heirs to the great Spanish sherry fortunes. The close-knit families of Jerez did not welcome strangers who came to stay -- but Charlotte was driven to make a place for herself in the strict circles of the Andalusian aristocracy. In time she would succeed -- beyond her wildest dreams -- but the first man she had loved would always haunt her, and one day, she knew, he would reach out to touch her life again...
