Summary

From New York Times bestselling author Jane Feather, a moving, unforgettable romance of defiance and desire. . .England's disastrous Civil War has robbed Lady Virginia Courtney of everything she holds dear--everything but her home, perched on the cliffs of the Isle of Wight. Left alone to defend it, she is powerless when the enemy forces arrive--but even more defenseless when she meets their leader, a fiercely commanding man whose eyes seem to see through to her very soul.Colonel Alexander Marshall is no less affected by his prisoner of war, the bewitching, capable woman who has seen so much loss in her young life. Though he would be justified to send her to the mainland--and to her certain death as a traitor--his hand is stayed by compassion. . .and undeniable desire. But even the most passionate love affair may not be enough to hold two sworn enemies together in the midst of war. . .

A dreamer with visions of inventing airships, he’s most certainly mad. Handsome beyond words, he’s also causing an irresistible flutter in her stomach beyond reason. When Gregory arrives to see their arranged marriage to its bitter end, Mercy desperately turns to Lennox with an offer of her fortune—and her hand in marriage. 
    The Earl of Morton has a reputation for being a daredevil eccentric, but even he is hesitant to engage in such a rash proposition—no matter how utterly beguiled he is by the wildly independent American heiress. And yet, with so much at stake, how can he possibly say no? But when their unconventional union grows into a passionate and inseparable love, more than Gregory’s obsession threatens them. Now, Lennox and Mercy will have to risk more than their hearts to save it.
