I totally need help finding a book I once read and would like to read again. I hope this is where I send this type of question.
From what I remember, at the beginning of the book, the heroine runs away through a swamp from her parents. I thought the story took place in Louisiana or the Southern United States.
Two brothers find her in the swamp and take her back to their house, where she meets the hero. At some point, she falls ill and he nurses her back to health. Her parents come to the house and try to take her away, but he stops them.
