Valley of the Vapours (Arkansas)
Ever since her mother’s death, Tisha Caldwell’s father has treated her like a prisoner. Although she’s twenty years old, he expects her to be as chaste as a child, flying into rages whenever she comes home late from a date, or when he suspects she’s been kissing some boy. When he sees her arms wrapped around the suave Roarke Madison, Tisha’s father decrees they must be wed.
And Roarke is no help at all when he presents her with the most beautiful diamond solitaire engagement ring she’s ever seen. Now, in the rough country of the great state of Arkansas, Tisha must balance her need for liberation with the love beginning to grow in her heart.
