Peek Inside Love's Legacy

Geoffrey Worth has misgiving about hiring an American widow as a governess. He longs to forget the past, and the daughter who reminds him of it.

Grenada, British West Indies, 1875

English plantation owner Geoffrey Worth has misgivings about hiring an American widow as a governess. But while Geoffrey longs to forget the past—and the daughter who reminds him of it daily—there is still duty to consider. And Bellefleur, his plantation. This is his life now. Warmth, family, love; these things only bring pain. And scars he’ll carry forever…

Elizabeth Malfonte is certainly not the aged widow he had anticipated. She’s young and beautiful, with a determination that wakes something deep within Geoffrey. Yet Elizabeth hides her own secret? The babe within her womb. And despite Geoffrey’s handsome, yet scarred face, her new employer has a cold and unforgiving nature that unsettles her, even as Elizabeth’s wariness slowly heats to desire.

But the bright beauty of this land is no match for the dark, ominous clouds of the past…

Praise

"If you took Jane Eyre but moved it back to the setting of Wide Sargasso Sea, subtracted the sympathy you normally feel for the main character in novel #2, cut out all the long and drawn out bits of JE that I tend to forget about between readings anyway, and made Jane a secretly pregnant, newly widowed American woman--you'd have a pretty good approximation of this novel. Since I'm on board with all of that, I enjoyed it. :)" ~ Becky on Books

Then I s... ...more
