“I am a man of my word. You shall still have your event. You can dance with every beau there, if that is your wish.”
I nodded sadly. “We will see how things play out, Mister March. If your son returns and still bears hatred for me I’ll not wed him, honor or no.” I lifted my chin, my eyes meeting his boldly. “I’ll not live in a loveless marriage, Mister March. I will live out my days as a penniless spinster before I succumb to that.”
The year is 1860 and in the South life isn’t easy. Sixteen year old Bree Montgomery is finding out firsthand how difficult it can be. She had the same dreams that most young women had; to fall in love and be whisked off her feet by her Prince Charming. But the sweet passionate dreams of night can turn into the harsh nightmares of reality in the light of day. Her hand in marriage has been promised by her father to the one young man who despises her most, Gabriel March.
While the country’s fate is wrapped in the turmoil of a brooding Civil War, a battle of wills is being fought as two stubborn personalities collide. In the heat of an argument a stolen passionate kiss leads to a truce and sparks a flame in Bree’s heart. In an era where propriety and reputation for a young woman are everything, Bree is torn between doing what’s proper and following her heart. Sweet Rebellion.
