The drama and passion of the Civil War explodes to life in
the pages of Rosemary Roger's sweeping, sensual new tale of
love divided . . and conquered. Beautiful, headstrong
Cameron Campbell knows her privileged life as a Mississippi
senator's daughter is about to be shattered. Her fine
Southern family has its share of secrets and scandal, and
as her father decides to stand with the Union, long-held
family rivalries lead to cold-blooded murder. But amidst
the devastation, one honorable man is about to show her the
meaning of love . . .
Six years ago Cameron offered Captain Jackson Logan her
heart -- and he walked away from her. She vowed then never
to let another man hurt her that way. But now, as war
assumes its deadly course, Cameron will be forced to find
an ally in this man she loves to hate . . and hates to
love. A man whose strength and courage will mirror her own
as she stakes a defiant stand against slavery. A man who
will face unimaginable danger by her side and show her the
magic of a rapturous love that comes but once in a lifetime.
