HE MARRIED HER FOR MONEY ...Alexandra Thurston's opinion of the male species is as tainted as her reputation. Her husband disgraced her when he wrongfully accused her of infidelity, and then divorced her. Running from her shattered life, Alexandra spent five years in England vowing never to trust another man again. Now she's returned to Charleston, South Carolina, at her father's request, determined to reclaim her good name. But when she crosses paths with Connor Manning, the devilishly handsome plantation owner, she soon finds herself unwittingly caught in a compromising position.... BUT COULD HE WIN HER WITH LOVE?When he promises Alexandra's father he'll marry her for cold, hard cash, Connor's only wish is to save the family plantation. He never dreams that this spirited woman will capture his jaded heart, leaving him with a desire for more than a wife in name only. But he is all too aware that the glorious passion they share is built on the foundation of a terrible betrayal...unless he can convince her to forgive him for wedding her in deceit -- and that his undying love is true.
