Rachel Brinton came from her comfortable home in Philadelphia to the savage and breathtaking beautiful land of sultry South Carolina to help with the rebuilding of lives of the poor Ashepoo River tenant farmers. Rachel, though, finds a danger she never dreamed imaginable. His name is Beau Tillson, known as "Beau Devil." This intoxicatingly dark and brooding man is the master of Belle Haven -- and of Rachel's heart. Beau continually fights against his emerging feelings for Rachel, for she is a threat to everything he holds dear. But as time passes and another threat emerges, Rachel is forced into the arms of this man who could be yet another danger, a man with a personality as dark as midnight.
