He had done the right thing for the wrong reason . . .
A man driven by despair and an unwillingness to forgive,
William Woodville fled his native England, his title, and
his duty. In the American wilderness he found the perfect
vengeance: a woman. She was a captive handed from tribe to
tribe in an odyssey of despair --- until William purchased
the untamed innocent on the auction block. He married her,
bedded her, and defiantly presented her to his father in
England before he turned and left . . . alone.
Abandoned by the man she loved, she let the pain of
betrayal make her strong. . .
Margery Mackinnon needed a family more than a husband,
love and security more than an explanation, and time to
discover the strange world about her. She blossomed from a
primitive wildflower to a lady of the ton: the woman she
was destined to be. When William returned to the wife he
left and the twin sons he never knew, he was captivated by
a beguiling woman unwilling to forgive him. Now the man
who abandoned love must fight to reclaim it. . .
