When Lady Constance Morrow finds herself held against her will aboard a ship bound for the American colonies–a ship filled with “tobacco brides” and felons–she is quite sure that as soon as she arrives she will find a reasonable man who will believe her father is an earl and send her back on the next ship to England. Instead she meets Drew O’Connor, a determined Colonial farmer who is nearly as headstrong as she is. Drew wins Constance as his bride but soon realizes he has taken on much more than he bargained for.

He shrugged. “They’ll believe me, not you.”
“Ho! Wise men say, ‘He who hath not a good and ready memory should never meddle in telling lies.'”
Drew smiled. “I have a good and ready memory.”
“Look. Isn’t he beautiful?”
Drew’s expression softened. “Ah, Nellie. He’s bald, pink, and has no teeth. What’s so beautiful about that?”
“You could have arrived atop a wildcat and no one would have said a word. They will adore you.”
