Sweeping from the exotic temptations of the Orient to the
ruthless grandeur of 19th century London, The Bartered
Bride is a compelling romantic adventure that begins
with a daring act of courage. After building a fortune
amid the splendor and dangers of the China seas, American
adventurer and merchant prince Gavin Elliott is sailing
for London, where he intends to establish himself in the
society that forced his family to leave in disgrace when
Gavin was only a child. But fate intervenes on an infamous
island in the East Indies when he tries to save a European
woman being sold at a slave auction.
Alexandra Warren ventures to Australia as a young bride
eager for adventure. A dozen years later she is returning
home as widow and mother when a pirate attack separates
her from her beloved daughter and condemns Alex to a life
of servitude. Then a miracle arrives in the form of a
steely-eyed Yankee captain willing to risk everything to
set her free.
A shocking turn of events brings an unexpected alliance
with her rescuer, and Gavin and Alex arrive in London as
intimate strangers joined by too many painful secrets. Yet
attraction and affection soon overcome the trial of their
first meeting. Until the past reaches out to change
Gavin's lifeâ€”and threatens the passionate love he has
found with his irresistible bartered bride.
