Drake Weston, Duke of Northumberland, is heir to wealth, prestige, and power. But when his rage pushes him to a tragic mistake, he must leave everything behind. Not just his home, but England herself. Cloaked in a false identity, Drake slips aboard a ship bearing indentured servants to America. Serena Winter lives out her Quaker beliefs tending the sick who arrive on ships in the Philadelphia harbor. But never before has she seen such squalor and misery as she finds on the latest ship from England. Nor has she ever met such a one as the half-conscious man with the penetrating eyes and arrogant demeanor. Though she saves his life, even taking him into her family home, there is little gratitude or humility in this man. And yet Serena is certain that beneath the brash exterior is a heart in search of peace. Against the rich backdrop of Regency-era England and a young America, two passionate, seeking hearts find in each other the strength to face hard truths—and confront an insidious web of deceit that may destroy all they hold dear.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 2/13/2014

    " It was ok. Not great, but ok. Admittedly, I don't like all the "thee" and "thou" language. I do, however, understand that that is true to Quaker Religion and form. I can respect that aspect of the story for historically accurate purposes, I just didn't love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kati | 2/8/2014

    " This is the second book of Carie's that I have read and I loved it just as much as the first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenni | 2/1/2014

    " I was surprised how, despite being a Christian author, Carie towed the line in sensuality in this romance. However, the intriguing plot turns and the powerful message of redemption made this book a really good read. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/26/2014

    " I didn't think I would enjoy this "cheesy" summer read as much as I did. It was surprisingly deep and thoughtful in the under layers of the story. I really enjoyed it "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kacey | 1/24/2014

    " I couldn't make myself finish it-with my "to read" pile so large it didn't seem right. I didn't really care for the characters from the beginning so it wasn't grabbing me. I found Drake very self-absorbed and frustrating and Serena kind of ditzy. Although the scenery during the ship passage was pretty well done...it sounded miserable! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 1/18/2014

    " Once again, good storyline! --But a bit too much of sensuality. I enjoyed the plot, but not the sensual scenes. I love to read, help me find books wihtout overmuch sensuality!! It can just about ruin a otherwise good book. :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlotte | 1/14/2014

    " Feb. 17, 2009: Wow. Great beginning. I'm loving this. Can't wait to finish! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer Peterson | 1/14/2014

    " other books by Jamie are better...this one seemed a little weak. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 1/12/2014

    " This book starts out well, but things get loosey-goosey towards the end. A pleasant enough read, but not a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah Boutwell | 1/2/2014

    " Mixture between Victorian setting to Quaker setting. She just keeps getting better and better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Awjtf | 12/16/2013

    " Wow! I loved this book! Jamie Carie is one of my favorite authors! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debbie | 11/9/2013

    " It was cute and much like a lot the books I have read. Why is it that the guy is always the arrogant one in the book? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 11/9/2013

    " good, fun book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anita Estes | 8/7/2013

    " At first I gave this four stars, but I changed it to five. This was a great read. Everytime I thought I had it figured out, the author threw something new into the mix. Great characters, good mix of mystery and romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 5/15/2013

    " This is a fast read and a beautiful love story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Valerie | 2/22/2012

    " So far, I have read three of her books and I have given them all a 2. I just didn't like the stories and the writing did not capture my attention. It's not an author I will pursue any more. Not worth the read time any more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tealen | 2/21/2012

    " I just couldn't get into the story with all the of verbage by the girl character -- too many thee's and thou's for normal conversation. "

    " I can say it wasn't a "oh I love this book". It was ok. I didn't feel the dragon had changed enough...and the story line was...eh. There could have been some elements to fix this. "

    " Really good Christian Romance novel. She didn't get "denomination" until the last 12 pages or so.
    Period piece. Passion. Good girl, bad boy. "
