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.
Book 2 of the James River Trilogy.
Re-reading. This is the most real of the trilogy. Regan protests too much initially, and I feel so bad for her once they hit America, but then seeing her success and beautiful daughter once they get away from Travis for a while - it turns out nicely!
