Ashley Lynne had never expected kindness from her guardian, the cruel Duke of Linfield. But to be betrothed by him to an aging peer she hardly knew was unthinkable. Even worse was the cost of her resistance, for Ashley awoke from a drugged sleep to find herself in the bedchamber of a dark-haired, steel-eyed stranger. Sent to England on business, Captain Salem McClellan assumed the lovely young woman curled in his bed was only an evening's entertainment supplied by the Duke of Linfield. Ashley's terrified protests were proof of her innocence and a powerful inspiration to rescue the young beauty from her guardian's clutches. From the gloomy docks of London to the lush green hills of Virginia, Salem and Ashley embark on a journey that plunges them into scandalous family secrets and into the danger of the American Revolution. Together they will fight for America's freedom and the promise of being wrapped in each other's arms ... forever. Jo Goodman writes with unique and impressive style. - Virginia Henley.

These mysteries take on new urgency when the fearsome Azteca storm over the Wicked High Mountains in search of fresh blood and hearts to feed their cruel, inhuman gods. Nanagada's only hope lies in a mythical artifact, the Ma Wijung, said to be hidden somewhere in the frozen north.
