She was caught in a whirlwind of passion . . .
Torn between two men, two brothers, and two fates . . .
Laura Prescott looked out into a future as bleak as the savage moors of Cornwall. The only daughter of a sea captain, Laura had been betrothed since childhood to her handsome cousin Jarrett Chandler, who would someday be master of Stormswept Heights. But it wasn't Jarrett who came to her in dreams; it was his impetuous younger brother Nicholas, whom she had loved for as long as she could remember.
Jarrett, she hardly knew, and she thought him a proud, arrogant man who had little or no interest in her and, so, who would be happy to break off their betrothal. But Laura was wrong --- for when she told him of her desires, darkly brooding Jarrett not only flatly refused to release her, but he also made it quite clear to her that he had only been waiting for her to come of age so that he could claim her as his bride.
Now, Laura must choose between Jarrett and Nicholas, only one of whom really loves her --- as she discovers one fateful, wild night on the shores of the starlit sea . . .
