Breathtakingly romantic, startlingly original, Connie Brockway's novels have captured the hearts of readers and the raves of critics everywhere.nbsp;nbsp;Now she brings you a unique and unforgettable love story that begins with a series of letters between a world-weary adventurer and the woman whose love brings him home.
nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;I give you fair warning.nbsp;nbsp;I intend to do whatever I must to abide by your late uncle's will and win Mill House.nbsp;nbsp;Though I know he never expected me to succeed, and for whatever reasons is using me to shame you, I accept his challenge.nbsp;nbsp;For the next five years, I will profitably manage this estate.nbsp;nbsp;I will deliver to you an allowance and I will prove that women are just as capable as men.nbsp;nbsp;And at the end, I shall accept Mill House as my reward.
Sincerely, Lillian Bede
My Dear Miss Bede,
nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;Forgive me if I fail to shudder.nbsp;nbsp;Pray, do whatever you bloody well want, can, or must.nbsp;nbsp;I shall look forward to making your acquaintance in my lawyer's office five years hence, when I take possession of Mill House.
