Her instinct to rebel against marriage to a man more than twice her age causes severe conflict between her and her brother, but Lord Penhavean insists she will marry the Earl of Moorby no matter what: with or without her consent. To ensure her compliant to his bidding he resorts to cruel measure and destroys the one thing she loves above all others.Distraught by loss of her horse, she flees to the creek with intention of setting herself free from fate worse than death. There she encounters a stranger, a young buccaneer of wise if witty countenance. Something in his eyes and tone of voice stirs feelings Emerald cannot ignore, and life once again seems preferable to that of death. But how can she now return to the house and the fate that awaits her, when she knows her heart finally captured by a man she could truly love?
