This book was a bit different than the other two I have read by Sandra Heath. This one is about a poor penniless widow, Emily Fairfield, who has to provide for herself, her son and her mother and somehow, has to manage to hold on to her son's inheritance of Fairfield Hall. Unfortunately, her husband left her in debt. She is being courted (more like blackmailed) into marrying Sir Rafe Warrender, who no one, including her mother and son, like. Sir Rafe has gotten his money by falsifying documents and stealing his cousin's, John Lincoln, inheritance. John is currently in Peru with Felix, who happens to have had an affair, and is still in love with, Emily's mother, Cora. Cora and Felix want Emily to be happy and they both know that won't happen if she is forced to marry Sir Rafe. Felix sends John Lincoln to England to "save" Emily from Sir Rafe. Of course, it is love at first sight for Emily and John. Then, the mystery begins. Add a little Inca Magic, in the form of Manco, and this story takes a thrilling twist. I loved this book and will treasure it always.
