Historical romance set in the magnificent landscapes of the back country of the Cape of Good Hope.

Georgina Blake flees a refined life in eighteenth century England to avoid a scandal. Determined to begin a new life, she voyages to the Cape of Good Hope, only to find death and destruction await, endangering those she holds dear.

Though she is intrigued by stranger, Anton Villion, trader, adventurer and maverick, his arrival threatens her precarious security. Anton, himself privy to a painful secret, shadowed by heartbreak and seeking peace, is drawn to Georgina despite his hurt and mistrust, and his reservations about her history.

In time, their growing love is thwarted by the past – and Louisa Somerville, hell bent on diverting Anton’s attentions. Fate has thrown them together but can Anton and Georgina salvage their bond before destiny tears them apart? Together, can they find the strength and courage to embark on a journey to redemption and everlasting love?

Excerpt
“It’s a beautiful day.”

She dropped her hand and looked at Villion, standing on the scratchy grass beside his magnificent black horse. And caught her breath.

He had shaved. The strong features, scraped clean of rough beard, stood out, perfect now, chiselled by the dancing morning light. His eyes, locked on hers, were blue enough to fade the sky. His thick, dark hair, trimmed to unfashionable shortness by Sara, barely touched his collar. There would be a scant amount on his nape to gather into a velvet ribbon, although the notion of Villion in a ribbon, tight breeches and a velvet jacket, lace frothing at his wrists and throat, was ridiculous. Georgina pressed her lips together.

“Yes.” She swallowed the smile that curved her mouth.

“Something amuses you greatly.”

“I had imagined you at a soirée in Bath with a lace cravat and your hair tied in a velvet ribbon.”

His eyebrows shot up as she blurted the words. He shouted with laughter; a joyful burst of energy. “Is that all I was wearing?”

She coloured as he steadied his blue gaze on her face.

“I jest, madam. It was a ludicrous sight, I am sure.”

The laughter died the instant he saw her flush, but the teasing tone of his voice remained, not lost on Georgina. “You are a married woman,” he said. “But even so, I fear I have overstepped the mark. My apologies.”

Beautiful Historical Romance
Gina Rossi takes you on a rich scenic trip back to eighteenth century South Africa where she weaves a breathtaking adventure coupled with pure villains and a love story that would stand the test of time. Loved every word of it!!

Re-kindles a Sceptic's Belief in Romance
Gina writes about my favorite part of the planet- the glorious Cape of South Africa. Perhaps I was a little misty eyed before I began reading, as it is where my wife and I went on honeymoon, including Franschoek the town central to the story. What struck me though, through the lush descriptions of her landscape in a period of sailing ships and Voortrekkers, was her wonderful characters. Each developed painstakingly to reveal their true worth and sharing their burdens of secrets due to living in a time when society made harsher moral judgements. The decency of inner person in each, our hero and heroine becomes more apparent with each event. I was left hanging until the final page, but then made truly satisfied that there is romance in this world and people that deserve its rich treasures. Should be read by the man or woman in your life because you love them...


A fabulous read
This is a great book - the historical and geographical settings lend a richness to this novel. The characters are vivid and the tension created is compelling. I haven't enjoyed a book so much in a very long time. Thank you, Gina Rossi, for a great read and I'm looking forward to your next book.
