Princess Elizabelita Innocente Concepcion Margarita is the heiress to Los Cielos. A kingdom that was once a thriving and lush valley filled with vineyards is now a barren wasteland. Her destiny is to bring life back to Los Cielos, if she lives long enough to fulfill it.
Eduardo Mateo Carlos de Veritas is the youngest of three brothers, and he bears the brunt of that position. His oldest brother Emmanuel, heir to Los Cielos was believed to have been killed by their middle brother Esteban. Eduardo is now a reformed man and no longer wishes to do the bidding of Esteban, even if it is to keep an eye on a beautiful princess.
Elizabelita still mourns the loss of Emmanuel, her betrothed. The thought of having to accept Esteban in his place makes her cringe, but it is a small price to pay to reestablish Los Cielos to its former glory. However when Eduardo enters her life, Lita is swept up in emotions that she has never experienced. He considers her his equal and his ally. Eduardo is sure that he will never be good enough for Lita, but that does not stop him from loving her. He becomes her champion and her protector, but can he be what she needs most? She must bring life to Los Cielos, the question is who will share that life? Emmanuel, Esteban, or her beloved Eduardo.
The plot ripens with all of the twists and turns in this story. Lita’s character is courageous and strong, not at all the shrinking violet like most of the women at the time. She is also witty and not above getting dirty to get the job done. Eduardo is a man trying to put the pieces of his life together. His faults and insecurities make him a much more believable character and a perfect match for Lita. They fight for a civilization that has been gone for generations, but will evil prevail once again? I encourage you to read this and find out for yourself.
