Book 3 of The James River Trilogy. "Forsaken by her guardian and narrowly escaping marriage to a money-hungry suitor, Regan flees Weston Manor, the only home she's ever known, determined to rule her own destiny. When Travis Stanford, a big, rugged American, finds Regan on London's docks, he vows to protect her -- unaware of the magnificent, iron-willed beauty she would become, or the dangerous, passion-filled future that awaited them both. From England's bawdy wharves to Virginia's elegant mansions, their love was kindled by chance, and flamed by the thrilling pursuit of unknown tomorrows."
I always forget about Regan's back story in the beginning of this book. The relationships between Travis, Wesley, and Clayton sticks out in my mind more, as part of the trilogy. So rereading is almost as exciting as the first read. I love how protecting Travis is. He reminds me of Miles in Velvet Angel, another good one.
