Book Description

Nov 1997

Once in a great while a dazzling new writer appears on the scene with a historical romance so breathtaking that it sweeps readers off their feet. Candace Proctor is such an author. Here, in her deubt novel, she brings to vivid life a part of the Regency period rarely dramatized . . . and creates sets of characters you will never forget.


Bryony Wentworth's life is shattered when she is unjustly accused and sentenced to indentured servitude in New South Wales. Broken in body--but not in spirit--she fights for light, and for her life, wanting no part of the man who would save her, Captain Hayden St. John. But the mother in her cannot turn away from Hayden's needy infant and the woman in her cannot deny her passion for the rugged, enigmatic man she is bound to serve.

Against the sweeping panorama of a harsh, gorgeous, and unforgiving land, two hungering souls learn to trust, to love, and to triumph over the danger that will shadow their lives--until destiny and desire become one.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1808 Byrony Wentworth has been convicted of manslaughter and sent to an Australian penal colony to serve her time as an indentured servant. Still even with her fortunes changed and grieving the deaths of her infant and spouse, Byrony's spirit remains strong. Captain Hayden St. John needs someone to wet nurse his baby Simon since his spouse died in childbirth. He turns to Byrony, still carrying milk from her own recent pregnancy and takes her out of prison. To his utter shock, she is not only ungrateful for his taking her out of prison, she wants nothing to do with him. However, Byrony cannot resist the need of the newborn and begins to feed the lad.
Before long Byrony and Haydenfall in love. However, the destructive element from her past has arrived, leaving the trio in danger. If they survive this assault, Byrony and Hayden may find time to explore their budding relationship.
NIGHT IN EDEN is an exciting historical romance that freshens up novels that occur during the Regency period by transporting the stupendous story line to Australia. The lead protagonists make a charming pair as they struggle to surmount their restrictive pasts. Candice Proctor may be relatively new on the scene, but her novel reads as if she is one of the grandmasters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth the read 21 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I liked this book - I especially enjoyed the character of the Captain - he's a real man. However, I would have enjoyed a bit more suspence/action. The overall story was filled with general suspense/action, but there were no mini-dramas along the way. I guess I missed the "boy meets girl, boy loses girl (sigh, a tugging at the heart strings), boy gets girl back."

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Romance I've read all year!! 26 Aug 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Now I've read hundreads of romance novels and I was at the point where I thought of giving them up because none could keep my interest let alone inspire much feeling. But then I read "Night in Eden." This was the novel that put me back on the reading horse. It was so bitter-sweet and I was right there with Bryony and the Captain. I don't want to say any more about what goes on in the story than what has already been written because I don't want to deprive the reader of one ounce of reading pleasure, but if you don't pick this book up you have NO IDEA what a wonderful book you'll be missing. By the way, if any of you out there have found a ook that is anything like this let me know!

I really enjoyed reading this book. Bryony and Hayden make a wondeful couple... to be able to capture such a fierce romance and translate it into such a great story was a great feat by Candice... I can't wait to read another of her books!
