Shelves: dragon-s-hoard , romance-hist This was a reread after many, many years--and it held up to my memory. I originally read this as a young teen and loved it.

I definitely understand why I liked it as a young woman.

September 23, New Orleans THE wide, muddy river lapped with deceptive laziness at the foot of the levee, while a heavily laden riverboat ponderously picked a path through a bevy of Union warships. Two hundred yards away, the main body of the fleet lay anchored midstream, apart from the city and its sometimes hostile inhabitants.
