Growing up poor in the slums of China, Lian had never dared to imagine happiness. But that was before dashing clipper captain Bryce Trevarian rescued her from a life of poverty, and before she discovered the heated pleasure of his kisses. Now, years later, as Lianne Catherwood, she is an heiress who has seen so many of her dreams come true. Except for the dream of love...with the one man she could never forget. After Bryce saved the lovely innocent from a Canton brothel, he could do no less than take her across the sea to Massachusetts to meet the wealthy father she'd never known. Then he ran as far away from her as he could. After all, he had a shipping line to build and his own life to lead. Now he's back, drawn by a desire he can't trust for the enchanting woman who had stolen his heart.
