--The Son of an English Lord Turns American Smuggler and Falls In Love With an English Fugitive Hiding in the Colonies in the Historical Romance High Adventure,Tender Fortune, by Judith French--
As Charity Brown glides down the grand staircase of Maryland's finest estate, no one suspects she is an escaped prisoner of the Crown, sentenced to 30 years slave labor. Charity's plan: secure her new-found identity and her future with a good marriage. Then Jamie Drummond arrives.
Masquerading as a dissolute son of an English lord, Jamie is a smuggler on the run who can offer Charity nothing... except a passion that sets her ablaze.
Surrendering to desire could send them both to the gallows.
But rolling fate's dice and shedding their masquerades may well earn a bounty far greater than either imagined, if it does not first burn their hopes to ashes.
