Shunned by her cold and distant father, Caroline Devonshire longed for the affection denied to her since her mother's death. But when the new overseer on her family's Virginia plantation aroused her innocent heart, she didn't dare give into her impulsive desires. For, as the threat of revolution grew, it was dangerous for a youngcolonial woman to trust a mysterious Englishman like Alexander Clairmont. Far more refined than any foreman Caroline had ever known, Clairmont had to be more than he pretended-but was he a British spy? Torn between passion and patriotism, Caroline yearned to surrender to Alex's virile charms, yet feared doing so would betray all she had ever loved.
