I have reread this book 10 or 12 times. Wonderful story that is connected loosely to "The Flame and the Flower" and "Shanna".

I thought it was reasonably good until the end which was thoroughly unbelieveable. Nevertheless, the romance was enjoyable.

The fiery and outspoken adopted daughter of one of England's most formidable women, Shemaine O'Hearn has made powerful enemies. And now her adversaries have found a way to remove the hot-blooded beauty from her life of privilege: by falsely convicting Shemaine of thievery and sending her in shackles to America, where she is to be sold in indentured servitude to the highest bidder.

In a bustling port city in the colony of Virginia, she becomes the servant of Gage Thornton--a shipbuilder with a young child in need of a nanny. And despite whispered rumors condemning the handsome widower for the untimely death of his wife, Shemaine cannot ignore her desire for this caring, generous and enigmatic stranger who silently aches with his growing need for her--even as grave peril reaches out from across a vast ocean to threaten their flowering love.

From wealth to rags could describe the begining of this book but things can change in how we perceive wealth.
