SHE WAS CALLED THE FIREBRAND...
Caroline Harlowe is determined to have the two things men bare told her she cannot -- a voice, and the freedom to use it. Fervently committed to the abolition of slavery, she becomes one of the first women students at Oberlin College, fired with a dream to someday make a difference. Marriage has no place in the life of a crusader... or so Caroline thinks until she meets Pierce Barnett, a man who stirs her heart crud threatens her cherished independence.
...AND ONLY ONE MAN COULD TAME HER
Caroline is astonished to find that Pierce applauds her courage and commitment... until a misunderstanding convinces her that he will never truly share her passion for change. But Pierce has his own physical and emotional scars earned in the battle against slavery, and he wants to protect Caroline as best he can. Yet when he makes another brave stand for freedom, Caroline will fight by his side for their fiery cause--and the love that will forever join their voices--and their hearts--in passionate victory.
