Proud and headstrong, Lady Rose Fairchild refused to be married off in order to settle her family's debts. Having fled to the wilds of America, she's determined to take over her late father's Virginia plantation and run it on her own. She certainly didn't expect to fight a brazenly handsome American with deigns on Willow Oaks. Peter Walters is no English gentleman, and he has a low opinion of British beauties who overstep their bounds. So how can she explain the unmistakable attraction sparking between them- an attraction they're both reluctant to admit. Yet when her family conspires to whisk Rose back to England, she knows her heart belongs to Peter. Now it is Peter who must decide which matters most: a lust for land or a blossoming love with the woman who was meant for him.
