Maggie Had a Dream . . . She'd escape from the poverty and shame of her family's bleak existence, determined not to surrender to the misery all around her.

But it would be a long journey for Maggie, a tempestuous year of breathtaking adventure as she learned that dreams of love often disintegrate into the brutal realities of treachery, violence and ravishment. It was a world of men she had escaped into – men of great wealth, men of power, greed, and insatiable lust. To survive she'd have to control the newly awakening desires within her as her beautiful body threatened to betray her at every turn!
