(From the publisher):
Hallie Deacon loves Jonathan Picard — or does she? When Hallie meets rakish riverboat captain Alex Reeves, she soon discovers he's a man she can trust with her innermost feelings, desires and dreams... but not her heart.
After one passionate night, Hallie vows never again to lose herself to this man who could never possibly love her, but as time goes on and a plague sweeps New Orleans, Hallie realizes there is something more important than keeping one's heart safe. There is risking everything for one chance at real love.
