Overview

Beautiful Clover Sherwood never expected such a cruel fate. Her father's death has left her penniless, ostracized from Pennsylvania society, and abandoned by her fiancé. All she has now is a grieving mother, two hungry little brothers and no prospects. . .until a wealthy Kentucky backwoodsman with a deep Scottish burr comes to town—and inspires her to make a most daring move. . .

It's no secret that rugged, roughhewn Scotsman, Ballard MacGregor is ready to marry. Nonetheless, he is surprised by genteel Clover's sudden proposal. . .and more than pleased. For the lass's sweet innocence is bewitching. But settlement life proves harsh on his refined young wife. And Ballard fears that unless he can awaken her passion and win her love—as she has won his—he may lose his Kentucky bride. . .

"The superbly talented Howell never disappoints." —Romantic Times

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Life changes drastically for gently bred Clover Sherwood when she impulsively, but out of necessity, marries brawny Scotsman Ballard MacGregor and moves to the wilds of 1790s Kentucky. This classic 1994 title, originally published by Avon, has been out of print for years and should please Howell's many fans.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Love the characters and the story was new and very interesting. I've read several of her books and have enjoyed them all.

A cute romance story, I enjoyed it. Not intimately hot, but the characters were so sweet and the story was worth reading.

I wish hannah wrote more westerns--------she is so great at them. Anyway poor Clover Sherwood. Her father kills himself . This leaves the upper class family destitute. Clover decides to make the ultimate sacrifice and marry to provide a home for her mother and two younger brother. Fortunately a handsome Scot turns up practically on her doorstep. She takes the ball and runs with it. The characters in this book are varied personalities and the plot takes twists and turns. Highly recommended!!!

Clover Sherwood had at the age of nineteen lead a quiet respectful life. The suicide of her father has left the family not only desolate but desperate and destitute, not only that but with no money her fiancé drops her flat on her face too. Ballard Macgregor has come to Pennsylvania to not only trade horses but to find a suitable wife, one that help him feel comfortable in polite society. When Clover proposes marriage he thinks all his prayers have been answered, she's a dream come true but she brings with her a curse from her past. Hannah Howell has made her livelihood with historical romance, but it's nice to see where it all began too. Not a lot has changed in those many years since she started. She's still a gifted storyteller, her characters are still amazingly larger than life, her romance is sweet, hot and sexy and her love scenes sizzle. Sometimes no change is good. If you know and love Hannah reacquaint yourself with where it all started. If you're new to her this is a great place to start.

In 1794 Langleyville, Pennsylvania the death of her father hurts but society girl Clover Sherwood is stunned to learn he left her mom Agnes, her two younger twin brothers and her with nothing except poverty and scandal. Her fiancé Thomas Dillingsworth politely dumps her by a letter and the Sherwood family high class friends do likewise as if they are lepers. Rugged Scotsman Ballard MacGregor arrives in town seeking a wife. He is taken aback when obviously upper class Clover proposes to him. He thinks she is pretty and sweet, but will never survive life on the Kentucky frontier. Still he marries her and his trepidation proves ominous as she struggles to adapt to settlement life. Clover is ready to leave defeated while Ballard still hopes to win her love; not realizing it is her love for him that has ready to leave. Proving she once had a life outside the Highlands, this is a reprint of a Hannah Howell 1994 early American historical romance starring two likeable lead protagonists. The story line is owned by courageous Clover as she struggles to make a new life on the frontier. Although a misconception plays a pivotal role that feels unnecessary as the lead couple has plenty on their plate with her adjustment from upper class Pennsylvanian to working Kentucky woman in a an overall wonderful Americana.
