Mandy may act all prim and proper as the director of the Santa Fe Women’s Art Museum, but underneath it all she is a very sexual woman and allows her passions to run free with her lover, Jared Cabrillo. Jared is the great-grand nephew of Atacar, an Indian outlaw who had an affair with the nineteenth-century artist Catherine Burke. Catherine had traveled from England and landed in Texas. She painted a portrait of Atacar, which lead most to believe they were lovers. Unfortunately, no one knows how their affair ended and what happened to the two. There are rumors of Catherine having a diary, and Mandy wants it. She just has to find it. But for the moment she enjoys sizzling, out of control sex with Jared.
