Daring Rescue and Escape to the Colonies in the Historical Romance, Crystal Passion, by Jo Goodman

1775 London, England and the Colony of Virginia
Ashley Lynne never expected kindness from her guardian, the Duke of Linfield. But being betrothed by him to a much older man she hardly knew was unthinkable. Worse was the cost of her resistance—awakening from a drugged sleep in the bedchamber of a dark-haired, steel-eyed stranger.
In England on business, Captain Salem McClellan assumed the lovely young woman curled up in his bed was only an evening's entertainment supplied by the Duke. But Ashley's terrified protests were proof enough of her innocence—and a powerful inspiration to rescue her.
From the gloomy docks of London to the lush green hills of Virginia, Salem and Ashley embark on a journey that exposes scandalous family secrets, and plunges them into the American Revolution where they fight for freedom, and the promise of each other...forever.

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: For fans of Jo Goodman we bring you one of her earliest books freshly edited, by Jo Goodman herself, for today's readers. Enjoy!

This is the saga of Ashley, an orphan under guardianship of Nigel, whose relationship to her is unclear until the middle of the book. Nigel is a twisted soul and tries to bend others to his will, using every conceivable evil way to do so. Ashley succeeds in escaping his grip in England by sailing to America, never dreaming Nigel will try to claw her back to England. She suffers several harrowing escapes in the course of the story. If that was all there was to the book, I would not have enjoyed it. The redeeming factor is Salem, the young man who appears early in the story, is rescued by her from prison and returns to America I with her to his family. We then have a sweet love story developing along the way, interspersed with the shenanigans of Nigel. Their love is true, and it is a joy to watch their life unfold. The story ends with Nigel still alive after yet another attempt to steal Ashley from Salem. Clearly, there will need to be another book to finish him off so Ashley and Salem can live happily ever after, if that is in the cards for their story. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily reviewed this book. This is my honest review.
