Read full description of the books:For centuries the towering stone castle on the storm-swept Devon cliffs has been the home of the noble Eden family; masters of England's largest fortune and humanity's darkest desires.
The year is 1790. Lord Thomas Eden, a dilettante who amuses himself with illegal dealings, now sets his eye on the beautiful serving girl Marianna Locke. She is a fisherman's daughter - and she refuses the advances of the most powerful man in the region.
Marianne's fierce pride costs her ten lashes and scars she will bear all her life. But it also torments Thomas Eden. He continues to pursue her. She continues to refuse. He is a man obsessed - willing to compromise the entire Eden legacy for a common girl with more dignity than a thousand well-bred ladies. Marianne sees the torment in his soul. And though she cannot forgive what the has done, she cannot forget the man...
From the chilly Devon coast to the glittering literary salons of London, from the depths of bitter anguish to the summits of unbounded passion, there is no paradise as and as painful as THIS OTHER EDEN.
