Library JournalAs the daughter of Lord Thornwood, Miranda Thornwood grew up in the grandeur of Thornwood Hall, but her heart belonged to stable boy Jason. So when her brother is accused of the murder of her Uncle Clarence, Miranda turns to the one person whom she knows will help her—Jason Blakewell. But for Jason, who was sent to the hulks for attempting to run to the Americas with Miranda ten years ago, experience has made him into a different man. He blames Miranda for telling her father about their forbidden love, for abandoning their love, and for the two years he suffered at hard labor. Jason has used his anger well, amassing an unimaginable fortune. As the owner of the gaming hell Blakewell’s, Jason is the obvious person for Miranda to turn to rescue her home and her brother’s future. It takes only moments for the taciturn Jason to once again feel the same love and connection to his beautiful Miranda.
