Publisher's Summary

Brenn Owen, the new but impoverished Earl of Merton, is looking for a bride - one rich enough to finance his estate. When he meets Tess Hamlin, he sees a woman who is not only wealthy, but a dazzling beauty as well. To his surprise, Tess quickly accepts his proposal. But behind her eagerness lurks a secret she will do anything to hide from him. As the Earl and his bride begin their life together, their path is a passionate one, but far from smooth: haste must give way to patience and understanding. Virginia Leishman's narration heightens the drama of each colorful exchange between the lovers. Millions of fans agree with Romantic Times when it praises Cathy Maxwell for being an author "who understands the human heart and whose stories touch our souls". Her novels are filled with dashing, daring characters, yet their desires are universal.


What the Critics Say

"Maxwell...makes good use of her trademark clean, crisp prose style, weaving a reverse gift-of-the-magi tale set in the Black Mountains of Wales and starring two engaging and lusty protagonists." ( Publishers Weekly)

No more Cathy Maxwell books for me

The story line and writing style of this book was very much that of Catherine Cookson which I have always found rather boring. The major difference with this book, of course, is the added sex scenes which were so explicit and so repetitive that the whole thing soon became too nauseous for me to continue.
