The things men did to her destroyed her innocence.The things she would do for the man she loved destroyed all her young notions of propriety. Trista Wiliams was drawn to Blaze Davenant with a passion that shamed her, with a yearning that left her powerless to hate him for spoiling her virtue.
From her Boston finishing school to the gracious twilight of the pre war South, from the golden land of California to the blood-soaked nightmare of the Civil War, Trista would be made to suffer the worst that men could do to her. Even the stepbrother she had worshipped since childhood was driven to forcefully possess her, and hurt her.But never would she let them take her dreams. Or ruin the raging, sweet love that comes but once in a woman's life.
