Thankfully my edition had a different cover, as I would not have picked this up with a Fabio illustration.

The story, a Yankee heroine who wants to take revenge on the hero, an English Lord, was mildly entertaining. What I did not like at all was the lack of communication between the two. Both had assumptions about each other, both lacked trust. The whole story was rather dreary but intriguing enough to stick to it until the HEA.

With Fabio on the cover, I didn't expect much from this book. I expected style with no substance and I was wrong. Compared to the other Patricia Potter tomes I've read, this takes place on the open seas and near seaports (most of the others are American frontier novels).

The time frame is during my favorite era: during and immediately after the Civil War.

This is a story opens as a tale of revenge. Lauren is alone; her father and brother - both doctors - are dead. The brother, Laurence, was Lauren
