"The enchanting, raven-haired daughter of the village mayor, Erienne Fleming is the fairest bloom in her English village. And of all who desire her, she would have only one: the dashing and witty young Yankee, Christopher Seton. But a marriage for love is not to be, as Erienne is auctioned off to the highest bidder to help pay off her irresponsible father's debts. And in the end, it is the enigmatic Lord Saxton who purchases her hand - a tragic and secretive noble who hides his scars behind mask and cloak, and who only appears to her after nightfall. Resigned to a solitary life in cold and rambling Saxton Hall, Erienne slowly learns the true nature of the stranger she calls 'husband.' A gentle and adoring soul, he treats his new bride with warmth and abiding tenderness. But though she valiantly longs to remain true to her elusive, mysterious spouse, Erienne finds herself irresistibly drawn to Christopher Seton's passion, his fire, and his intrigues. Ans soon she'll have to make a devastating choice between her duty and her heart"--Publisher's description.

I read this book when it came out and determined it was my favorite. I read it again 2/18/11 to see if it was as good as I thought. And Yes 28 years later it is still my favorite.
