The privileged daughter of a Virginia plantation owner, Kiernan Miller can't imagine that her idyllic life will ever change--nor her days in the company of her devastatingly handsome neighbor, Jesse Cameron, a boy who returns her desire, kiss by tempestuous kiss.

To follow his conscience, Jesse Cameron must sacrifice his heart. He deserts his hometown, turns against his own brother, and rides away from the woman he loves. But he vows that it will not be forever. Now, bringing the war to Kiernan's front door, Jesse has returned as the enemy, intent on winning back the widow with emerald eyes and sun-kissed hair--the beauty who has branded him a traitor.
