So when Giles goes to the Welbourne Plantation to pick up product, heís more than surprised that the wealthy sugar planterís daughter has strong feelings against slavery.
When Grace Welbourne was only ten she was almost raped by a man she thought was family.

But with Grace being fair and beautiful, her father is still determined to keep the family secret hidden and Grace married to a suitable husband.

Giles is convinced that fate has put Grace in his path and it is his destiny to save her from the bitterness of the plantation. With a special love and understanding, Giles captures part of Graceís heart and vows to make her very happy. But dark secrets stand between the newly wed couple. Will the secrets from Graceís past destroy the new love she has found with Giles?

There is something new revealed at every turn of the page, keeping readers entranced until the very end of the book. Iím looking forward to reading more from Paula Reed.
