Forsaking All Others Author:Gail Link Englishman Anthony Chambers arrives in Australia determined to expose the scheming, whoring ways of the woman with whom he shared his inheritance, Annie Ross. The terms of his uncle's will dictated that he live a year with Annie at Camelot station--certainly enough time to expose her for the tart she must be. In his arrogant assessment of the wo... more »man who shared his uncle Cedrick's home and life, Tony never even entertained the notion that Annie's and Cedrick's relationship could be based on simple friendship. The world that he comes from in London is a much more calculating one, and men and women play by the rules of high society where friendship between the sexes is unheard of, especially when the woman claims to be widowed and has a small child. But then, Tony has never met a woman like Annie before. And when he does, he finds all of his assumptions, morals and values thrown into question.
Annie Ross refused to be intimidated by the aloof, arrogant Englishman. Several years before she left behind his judgmental type when she left her home in Philadelphia to accompany Cedrick to Australia. Fiercely protective of her past, her child, and her home, Annie is determined to remain at Camelot station despite Cedrick's arrogant nephew. Annie's quite surprised by the touch of gentleness Tony exhibits toward her daughter, and even more surprised by the concern he demonstrates toward her. Then again, perhaps the hiring of servants isn't to ease her burden, but only to uphold his proper station in society. Nevertheless, independent and capable, Annie finds other occupations for her time. Yet she finds it difficult to resist her growing attraction to this man, despite the painful memories of her past with her daughter's father.« less
