Stepping Across the Desert by Kat Caldwell

Five years ago, a servant from her father's house sold Rowena into slavery. Now, a stranger at her master's table will change her destiny once more.

Christophe knew that taking a woman across the desert would be dangerous, what he didn't know was that the journey could change the very heart of him.

Back in England, Rowena is faced with malicious rumors and family members who wish to decide her future for her. A chance encounter with the man who rescued her gives her another chance at happiness, but does she have the courage to take it?
