Heart of a Dove by Abbie Williams (Dove Series #1)
The Civil War has ended, leaving the country with a gaping wound. Southern orphan, Lorie Blake, has worked as a prostitute since she was fifteen, carefully guarding her aching heart from the disgrace forced upon her every evening. Sawyer Davis, who fought bravely as a Confederate soldier for three bitter years, is now ravaged by haunting memories and the loss of his entire family. When their paths intertwine in a river town whorehouse, neither is prepared for the passionate intensity of their attraction to each other.
Forced to flee, Lorie joins Sawyer and his traveling companions—his two best friends and an incorrigible young boy with a heart of gold—on their journey north to Minnesota, where they long to build new lives. But danger pursues them; in the form of a vindictive whorehouse madam and two crazy and vengeful Union soldiers. Lorie, soiled and shamed, must come to grips with her past and a secret that she cannot yet bear to reveal: her pregnancy by another man.
Through it all, Sawyer and Lorie know only one truth: they must be together. Even if it means challenging Death itself.ISBN ebook: 978-1-77168-15-8 ISBN Trade Paper: 978-1-77168-14-1 Romance – Historical 350 pages Coming: Fall 2014
