Kidnapped and sold as a bond-servant, young Jared St. Andrew Bellington, earl of Alveston, is abused and mistreated by his various masters. Then one day he has the good fortune to be in the right place at the right time and saves another young boy from drowning. The father of the boy has come to the Virginia colony to find a new life for himself and his son and daughter. Alfred Kensington takes Jared in and allows him to become a member of his family-- but Jared's true identity is left unproven for many years. After tragedy strikes the Kensington family, Jared becomes like a son to Alfred and like a brother to pretty little Della. He vowed as a child to protect Della and now as a grown man he sees her only as the little girl he grew up with. What he doesn't know is that Della has loved him from the moment she saw him and that her feelings for him are those of a full grown woman. The bond between Jared and Della is stronger than the chains of misery that bind Jared's spirit and wider than the ocean he crosses to reclaim his lost heritage. As Jared unravels the past and faces an uncertain future, Della is there beside him-- as she's always been-- ready to defend him from any enemy, including himself. But the scars on Jared's back are mere shadows of the scars that he bears on his soul. Jared still sees himself as the bond-boy he once was, less than a slave and not worthy of the love, respect and admiration Della has for him. In this heart warming tale, Edith Layton creates a hero that is handsome, yet scarred; strong, yet vulnerable. Jared is a man without a name and Della is his savior, even if he doesn't realize it. Their love story is poignant and special, all the more so because Ms. Layton shows them as children growing up in a new world and finding their way together. Bound By Love is a lovely tribute to the power of love and the importance of friendship and family. A richly textured novel of the highest quality! Edith Layton has penned a romance that will touch your heart! Edith Layton is a unique voice in romantic fiction! Bound By Love is her finest work... so far! Entertaining and emotionally compelling! Fast paced plotting, flawless dialogue, well-rounded characters and a love so powerful it will take your breath away-- what more could a reader want?Kristina Wright -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc.
