“Weyrich writes a sensuous love story!”—Affaire de Coeur
When her mother is condemned as a witch and sent to the gallows, Alice Wiggins flees her English homeland to escape the same fate. In the colony of Maine, an inheritance awaits her— as does Christopher Gunn, an arrogant stranger who ignites a restless sensuality deep inside the young beauty.
In the splendor of the Northeast woods, headstrong Alice is brought to blissful surrender by a desire too powerful to resist. But as she fears that Christopher’s heart isn’t hers alone, she’ll challenge the violence of war, the hazards of nature, and even death for his love.
