i'm trying to find the name of the historical romance book where the heroine is injustly accused of murder and is branded a criminal. before she falls into the hands of the jailors, she is shipped to america as slave labor. another woman on the vessel protects her from the sailors until they reach land, but she is sold off as a prostitute when they unload her.
the guy that buys her sets her up as entertainment for his party, and in true coincidental book fashion, the hero of the book is her first "guest" and rescues her once he finds out what happened. she's basically his prisoner as he tries to get her away from the guy that bought her, and the story and the characters develop from there.
i have been dying to reread this book for years. can anyone give me any information on it? thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Petals on the River - Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
The fiery and outspoken adopted daughter of one of England's most formidable women, Shemaine O'Hearn has made powerful enemies. And now her adversaries have found a way to remove the hot-blooded beauty from her life of privilege: by falsely convicting Shemaine of thievery, and sending her in shackles to America, where she is to be sold in indentured servitude to the highest bidder.
In a bustling port city in the colony of Virginia, she becomes the servant of Gage Thornton --- a shipbuilder with a young child in need of a nanny. And despite whispered rumors condemning the handsome widower for the untimely death of his wife, Shemaine cannot ignore her desire for this caring, generous and enigmatic stranger who silently aches with his growing need for her --- even as grave peril reaches out from across a vast ocean to threaten their flowering love.
