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 some testing.

Headstrong and intelligent, deeply moral but incredibly enticing, Constance turns what was supposed to be a marriage of convenience into something most inconvenient, indeed.

    " I absolutely loved this book. It's an inspirational historical romance set in the Virginia colony in the 1640's. I really liked both the hero and heroine; the author made them seem very real, and I wanted them to resolve their problems and get the happiness they both deserved. "

    " I have read other books by this author. This one I had to force myself to finish reading. The characters did not speak in the English of their time and putting the feminist view in the 1600's just does not fit at all. "
