Overview

In Carolina Colony, the community admired Susannah Redmon, plain eldest daughter of the preacher. Her herbal healing skills made her an angel of mercy, her determination held together the family's farm, and her strong will always got her what she wanted--even the buying of a man.  But no suitor had ever courted her...

Ian Connelly, Marquis of Derne, had been betrayed, branded a criminal, and beaten.  Still defiant, he had been indentured and transported to the Colonies, where a bossy, primly proper woman had bought him!  But he alone saw the strength of her character, the gold in her tawny hair, and, in her eyes, the fire of her long-hidden desire...

Now Susannah "owned" this magnificently handsome rogue, but it was his passion that could free her imprisoned, lonely heart.  From the frontier South to society London or even to hell itself, with her body she would worship him and with her soul she would love him, for she was...Nobody's Angel.

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Set in the Carolinas during the colonial period, this saucy Cinderella story concerns the unexpected seduction of a Methodist minister's plain and practical daughter. Susannah Redmond, who has sacrificed much of her youth to care for her otherworldly father and her three motherless younger sisters, buys an indentured prisoner named Ian to help with the heavy chores. When Ian washes and shaves his beard, Susannah finds (to her horror) that he's the devilishly handsome prince of her dreams. Though she fears he will seduce her innocent sisters, she is the one who loses her virginity and her heart to him. It turns out, of course, that Ian is actually the wealthy Marquis of Derne. When he returns to England to right the wrong done to him and recoup his title and riches, he takes the incredulous Susannah with him against her will. Amidst the glamour of London's high society, she realizes she has given her heart and her body to a man whose social standing is far above hers. Though she returns home to Beaufort, all ends happily in this lighthearted romance, which is sure to please readers who relish sexy period romps. Robards wrote This Side of Heaven. (May)

An excellent read. Timeperiod is set in the Carolina Colonies. A young woman who barely holds her family together, purchases an indentured servant who is not at all what he seems. Ms. Robards does it again!

I'm giving this three stars because I'm not sure if I like it or not. This is not the first Karen Robards book I've read. I like almost everything of hers. This is just so different than the others. It had an interesting plot, but I thought Ian was not very likeable and Susannah was even worse than he was in that respect. I will, however continue to read her books as they do keep you wanting to find out how she brings it all together at the end. My favorite of hers, is Hunter's Moon.

I usually don't read romance novels (im a paranormal fan) But I thought this was a good story. The only thing that irritated me about it was the ending. It was ABRUPT. The ENTIRE story was wrapped up in a chapter and I felt it should have went more..... in depth than it did. Otherwise, it was good.

Set in 1769, I really enjoyed this book. Not only did I like Susannah but I also liked her sisters. I wonder if they'll get stories of their own for us to read. This book reminded me of the book by Pamela Clare called 'Sweet Release'. That was a good read also. So far this is the third book by Ms Robards I've read and they all have been fantastic. Look forward to reading my next book.
