But amidst the devastation, one honorable man is about to show her the meaning of love.... Six years ago Cameron offered Captain Jackson Logan her heart -- and he walked away from her. She vowed then never to let another man hurt her that way. But now, as war assumes its deadly course, Cameron will be forced to find an ally in this man she loves to hate...and hates to love. A man whose strength and courage will mirror her own as she stakes a defiant stand against slavery.
