Driven from her home by accusations of witchcraft, Lady Anna Fenwick embarks on a dangerous quest. Her reluctant protector is darkly brooding Jack Milburn, a merchant venturer with a shadowed past.
Jack exists only to exact his revenge on the man who killed his lover and their son, but Anna slowly teaches him how to feel again. So when fate returns Jack's son to him, miraculously alive and well, marriage seems the answer. But will Anna ever be more to Jack than his convenient bride?
June Francis’ introduction to stories was when her father came home from the war and sat her on his knee and told her tales from Hans Christian Anderson. Being a child during such an austere period, her great escape was the cinema where she fell in love with Hollywood movies, loving in particular musicals and Westerns. Years later, after having numerous articles published in a women's magazine, she knew that her heart really lay in the novel and June has been writing ever since.
