(From the publisher):
He had done the right thing for the wrong reason....A man driven by despair and an unwillingness to forgive, William Woodville fled his native England, his title, and his duty. In the American wilderness he found the perfect vengeance: A woman. She was a captive handed from tribe to tribe in an odyssey of despair—until William purchased the untamed innocent on the auction block; married her, bedded her, and defiantly presented her to his father in England before he turned and left...alone.
Abandoned by the man she loved, she let the pain of betrayal make her strong....Margery Mackinnon needed a family more than a husband, love and security more than an explanation, and time to discover the strange world about her. She blossomed from a primitive wildflower to a lady of the town: the woman she was destined to be. When William returned to the wife he left and the twin sons he never knew, he was captivated by a beguiling woman unwilling to forgive him. Now the man who abandoned love must fight to reclaim it....
