With her raven tresses and brilliant dark eyes, Lynn Trevor cast a spell over more than one man in Cornwall. Her wild beauty held a passionate spirit and a determination that would let nothing stand in her way. But many whispered that her uncanny abilities and unnatural independence proved she trafficked with the powers of darkness-and they claimed her life should be forfeit. To gain her freedom, Lynn fled to the wilds of the New World as the reluctant wife of handsome, aristocratic rogue Clay Penley. In the untamed raw colony she would struggle to build her future-and free herself from shadows of the past. But she had no weapons to fight the man whose kisses heated her very blood with shameful desire, whose passion would fire her senses to undreamed-of ecstasy-and who held her spellbound to a love neither time nor torment could break.
