Publisher's Summary

Brought up amid the luxury of plantation life, Marianne Johnston never questions her sheltered life until, driven by her conscience, she joins the Underground Railroad. Soon Marianne is living a dangerous double life, helping slaves flee by night and acting the belle by day. And nothing is riskier than her attraction to wild, heartless young Southerner Yves Chamard - while being courted by his noble older brother.

Now Marianne is desperately trying to resist Yves's seduction, knowing that her surrender to his touch may cost her everything. Gretchen Craig returns with another sweeping story that brings the Old South to life in all its glory - and a passionate heroine compelled to follow her heart.

Critic Reviews

"Craig's romance depicts Southern life before the Civil War with sympathetic characters, and highlights the lifestyle and the moral dilemma faced by white Southerners who opposed slavery." ( Booklist)

I must say the first book was so slow then I purchased the second. The second was better but this was awesome. This book is worth the credit. The author is excellent. The characters are interesting. I truly enjoyed this book.
