Land of Falling Stars
An erotic romance set during the Civil War
I think it's safe to say the hero and heroine in this novel have a polemic relationship that vacillates between hate and love. Gavin staggers back to Arbor Rose, Sophia's childhood home, with an important message and a heart-wrenching confession. He's always loved Sophia, but she was promised to Jesse the day she was born.
Believing Gavin is just another Yankee come to steal or worse, Sophia shoots him -- and soon realizes the Yankee is none other than her childhood friend, and the true love of her heart.
He carries a secret, one he's honor-bound to reveal, and yet, his confession will destroy whatever chance they have at happiness.
Mule Cooper, the former overseer, wants Arbor Rose and he'll do anything to obtain it . . . including murder.
