|Summary, etc.:||"Paris, 1889. Luz Alana set sail from Santo Domingo armed with three hundred casks of rum, her two best friends and one simple rule: under no circumstances is she to fall in love. In the City of Lights, she intends to expand the rum business her family built over three generations, but buyers and shippers alike can't imagine doing business with a woman...never mind a woman of color. This, paired with being denied access to her inheritance unless she marries, leaves the heiress in a very precarious position. Enter James Evanston Sinclair, Earl of Darnick, who has spent a decade looking for purpose outside of his father's dirty money and dirtier dealings. Ignoring his title, he's built a whisky brand that's his biggest -- and only-- passion. That is, until he's confronted with a Spanish-speaking force of nature who turns his life upside down."--Publisher's description.|

No one has to tell Luz Alana Heith-Benzan that it is a man's world. Luz has spent years trying to convince men to take her seriously. Luz's latest attempt to successfully market her family's Cana Brava brand of rum involves a trip to Paris for the Exposition Universelle, but even there she consistently encounters testosterone-bias and resistance to businesswomen until she bumps into James Evanston Sinclair, earl of Darnick. In the City of Light to showcase his Scotch whisky, Evan can't help but be impressed by Luz's fierce determination to sell her rum. So, when it turns out that a marriage of convenience would offer them both significant business rewards, a deal is struck. After conquering contemporary romance, Herrera (Just for the Holidays, 2021) launches her late-nineteenth-century-set Las Léonas series with an intensely romantic, scorchingly sensual love story that makes the most of its vividly realized setting and memorable cast of characters and allows her to continue her vivid and effective illumination and celebration of Latinx culture and history.
