A reluctant marriage of people from "two different sides of the tracks." Leah is a truly wonderful person and Wes will drive you crazy with his treatment of her. It takes him a long time to see what he really has in her. There are a lot of funny parts in here too like the mud fight and the women "cleaning" Leah up! You get to see the previous James River couples and we return to Sweetbriar as well which I loved! ( )

Two books into my "Worst Book of 2012" I think I may have already found the winner. It is so bad. It is so unbelievable and unbelievably bad. The characters are...bad. The plot...bad. The writing...bad.

Where to begin? A man of culture and money, especially in 1803, is not going to jump the gun and marry swamp trash just because she's pregnant. No. He's going to deny, deny, deny, and at the very most give the smelly swamp trash a little money now and then so eventually the kid can go into service when he or she comes of age.

Women of a fine pedigree and a certain means are not going to dedicate any time or effort to trying to educate said swamp trash and teach her all the areas of refinement in speech and manner. This does not happen. It never happened. The upper classes have spent hundreds, thousands of years keeping the muck at an arm's distance. They preclude any assimilation at any chance or opportunity.

That's just two semi-rational reasons not to pick up this poorly written, poorly plotted smear of literary pig plop. Which makes me think my job here is done. ( )

Virginia in het jaar 1803. De mooie maar arme Leah Simmons droomt van een huwelijk met de rijke en onbereikbare Wesley Stanford. Wanneer zij op een maanverlichte nacht Wesley toevallig ontmoet, verleidt zij hem met haar wilde, onbevangen schoonheid. De gevolgen van deze ontmoeting kan Leah niet lang verborgen houden.

Wesley wordt gedwongen haar tot zijn echtgenote te nemen, hoewel zijn hart aan een ander toebehoort. Na het huwelijk verdwijnt hij echter spoorloos. Leah blijft achter bij Wesley's broer Travis en wordt omgetoverd van een lelijk eendje in een prachtige zwaan die menig man de adem beneemt.

Bij zijn terugkeer wenst Wesley Leah nog steeds niet als echtgenote te accepteren. Hij kan zijn landgoed echter niet langer onbeheerd laten en moet Leah wel met zich meenemen.

Tijdens de avontuurlijke tocht daarheen lijkt Wesley van gedachten te veranderen. Zal de vrijgevochten Leah haar droomprins dan toch in de armen kunnen sluiten? ( )

This is my favorite of the River series. I really enjoyed it. Wesley has some serious frying pan moments, and Leah too, but it was really enjoyable.
