To one she is promised -- a man of wealth and power and property. Yet another will own her heart.

He is Grant Hamilton, a daring and unpredictable American rogue who

This story makes no sense. None. And I don't mean that it suffers from certain romance-genre cliches involving improbable rakes and the virgins who reform them. I mean I don't get it. These characters aren't shallow stereotypes. They aren't that well drawn!

They're angry at one another. I don't know why. I don't even get that sense of chemistry in which two people want each other, know they can't have one another, and are therefore upset about it. Aside from the fact that there's no real chemist
This is a well written, albeit, laborious book. I found this for a quarter at a used bookstore, and I've been dreading it because of all the terrible reviews. I almost threw it out, but I pulled this out of a stack of unread historical romance I got tired of staring at, and decided to hunker down and read it.

I would have liked it a lot more it hadn't been so low and muddy. I kinda get the sense that Mrs Rogers was half asleep while writing this.

I liked her older stuff from the 1980's especially the Morgan - Challenger Series. I picked up The Tea Planter's Bride hoping to find another sexy, entertaining book. Instead I found myself bored. I nearly didn't finish it. Stick to the older books is my best advice.

I have to say I was rather disappointed in this book and didn't even finish it. For one, there was entirely too much backstory at the beginning before I even had a chance to connect with the heroine and we didn't even meet the hero until chapter four. By then, what was mentioned of the hero was not all that impressive, in my opinion.

This is a long novel about Celia- a daughter of a gypsy and an Englishman. It revolves about the way she was raised by an aunt and uncle, her betrothed and the sudden uprooting of her life. It's an interesting tale with lots of twists and turns- not really sure it was worth the time spent.

UGH -_- i would not recommend this book to anyone. not only was it incredibly dull and dry for the first 3/4, it was very dark with some pretty disturbing scenes near the end that eclipsed the supposed happy ending. it just wasn't a good book at all.

I thought that this story had a lot of potential, but it got so bogged down in unnecessary details and tangents that the plot only trudged forward. Ultimately I was unsatisfied by the lack of interaction between the hero and heroine.

OMG, what a waste of time & money. My own fault because when I bought it I didn't realize it was originally published in 1995. So, 407 pages of nauseating drivel. Never again. I will be much more cautious in the future.

This was not one of Ms. Rogers best books, but it was still an okay read. Rosemary Rogers has written so many great books and she should not be judged by this one! This book was good but not great.

I wish there were more scenes between Grant and Celia. And the romantic scenes were anti-climatic; it could have been more intense. The child sexual abuse was too much.

Not exactly a pretty story. A ghastly childhood and greed is prevalant. It does end well though.
