THEY LOVED AND FOUGHT WITH A PASSION THAT COULD NEVER BE CONQUERED.
Out of the glory and agony that was the Civil War, bestselling author Patricia Hagan has brought to life a tale of victory and tragedy low and pain, escape and triumphant reunion--the epic saga of a woman betrayed into bondage by her spiteful twin sister, forced to fight for her beloved family plantation, Pinehurst, and for a man her heart could not resist. Horse breeder Rance Taggert was a dashing scoundrel, an irresistible rogue. In a reckless horse-racing bet he won an extraordinary prize -- April Jennings, the beautiful Southern belle kidnapped from her plantation home. Terrified and alone, April escaped and made her way across thundering battlefields, risking injury and worse at the hands of brutal men. Yet even in her determination to find a way home, April could not forget Rance... for though she might escape him, he had won her heart forever!
