Publisher's Description

Charles Locke is risking everything to make his fortune in a tea-trading enterprise. Sarah Carlyle believes money is the root of all evil and is determined to be rid of her fortune. When Charles and Sarah are thrown together at sea, their hearts are unexpectedly bound. But when Sarah discovers Charles's hunger for money and Charles discovers Sarah's fortune, their love is suddenly in question. Can Sarah give her heart to a man motivated by money? And does Charles truly love her—or does he love her fortune?

Charles Locke was about to fulfill his father’s dream -- to begin a tea trading company based on the wealth the elder Locke had acquired during a life of service as a steward. A pirate attack smashes that dream to bits.

Sarah Carlyle wants nothing more than to be rid of her family’s ill-gotten wealth. On the journey home from dispersing some of her money to various missions, her ship comes across an attacked vessel. As she cares for the injured men, a friendship forms between herself and one heartbroken over his loss - Charles Locke. But her ideals clash with his ambition, and Sarah knows she could never marry a man whose goals in life were to earn money and build a trade empire for his descendants.

Upon returning to England without money, tea, or the woman he loves, Charles finds his father still determined to begin a company, this time with the help of a sponsor. Charles mingles among the rich to find someone willing to help, and his path crosses with Sarah’s as he learns of her wealth and status as Lady Delacroix. With such radically different lives and goals, it’s impossible for them to be together, right?

Written in the style of Jane Austen, Palmer’s new Regency series is off to a promising start with The Affectionate Adversary. Manners and etiquette mask deep emotions and strong characterization. The rambling story may frustrate a few plot-driven readers despite its numerous twists, but Austen fans will enjoy the style and tongue-in-cheek allusions. The theme ties the novel together with thought-provoking quandaries. Recommended for women. – Katie Hart, Christian Book Previews.com
