Any ship arriving from England means good news for Virginia colony
farmers. The “tobacco brides” would be on board—eligible women seeking a better
life in America, bartered for with barrels of tobacco from the fields.
Drew O’Connor isn’t stirred by news of a ship full of brides. Still
brokenhearted from the loss of his beloved, he only wants a maid to tend his
house and care for his young sister.
What he ends up with is a wife—a feisty redhead who claims she is Lady
Constance Morrow, daughter of an Earl, brought to America against her will. And
she wants to go straight back to England as soon as she possibly can. She
hasn’t the foggiest notion how to cook, she dares to argue with her poor
husband, and she spends more time working on mathematical equations than
housework. What kind of a wife is that? Drew’s Christian forbearance is in for
intelligent, deeply moral but incredibly enticing, Constance turns what was
supposed to be a marriage of convenience into something most inconvenient,
indeed. Download and start listening now!
