moreAmidst a mystifying murder-suicide in small-town Gibraltar, 21-year-old teacher Magnolia Carroll must sell her land or marry well in this late-Victorian erotic romance novella. Magnolia has few options: the handsome and collegiate banker's son, a former classmate turned rebellious student, or the one man she truly desires -- the bookish farmhand (a man twice her age!), John Sherborn LaPorte, who was raised in French Canada after his mother escaped slavery. Bound by mourning etiquette, Magnolia battles her own demons in deciding her future, and betrayals nearly derail her dreams in one sinful week in springtime. Will she risk money and marriage, or love and lust over land?
