SHE DESIRES ONLY HIM. . .
Meghan McBride owes her life to the elegant stranger who saved her from a brutal attacker. Death had cruelly taken away her father on this long voyage to America, leaving her alone and prey to the dangers that lay beyond her Irish homeland. Now, in need of a man's protection until they reach Delaware's shores, she agrees to pose as Lucas Ridgely's bride-to-be.
. . .BUT SHE WAS PROMISED TO ANOTHER
Meghan is nothing like the pampered beauties Lucas is used to courting, but this waif-like woman with the haunting air of melancholy stirs something deep inside him. In America, a man waits for her. But the thought of Meghan in another's arms drives Lucas almost to madness. Somehow, he must find a way to claim her for his own, to show her the true meaning of passion—and to convince her that promises are made to be broken. . .and true love is meant to be fulfilled.
