Booklist Review

Brandon Caruthers returns home toentucky after fighting for the Confederates only to find the war has destroyed River Trails, his ancestral home. When Brand learns he has unexpectedly inherited an estate in England, it seems like a second chance to build the racing stables of which he had always dreamed. After arriving in England, Brand discovers the only things he has inherited are a country house in need of costly repairs and the title of Baron Rushcroft; then he receives a most interesting proposition from wealthy widow and practical businesswoman Miranda Auburn. Worried that a worthless bounder is seducing her young daughter, Lorilee, Miranda wants Brand to marry Lori, and in return, Miranda will secure his loan with her bank. With few other options, Brand begins courting Lori only to gradually realize the woman he really wants is her mother. The second of Henke's American Lords historicals is another sensual treat for readers who like their romances liberally laced with both danger and desire. --John Charles Copyright 2004 Booklist
