Connor Pendarvis has a bitter past and a driving ambition -- exposing the harsh working conditions in Miss Sophie Deene's copper mine is only the beginning. Sophie Deene is her father's daughter -- proud, fiercely independent ... and bound by convention. She might hire a handsome, insolent Cornishman to work in the mine, but she wouldn't fall in love with him. Impossible, unthinkable. What would people say?
But she swallows her pride for love, defying everyone, never thinking Connor could betray her. And he risks everything he thought he wanted for a love that will last.
