He was everything she feared . . . and wanted . . .
A stunning Scottish beauty with great courage and strength of will, Lady Megan Dixon's sole frailty is a yearning, passionate heart. From her very first glimpse of Sir Bryan Hepburn, the new local warden, the striking young widow feels breathless and weak. Her body aches to feel the strong arms of this handsome devil enfold her; her mouth hungers for his. But without trust there can never be love. Megan's only concern now must be the safety of her young son and the protection of their lands. And danger follows this extraordinary man like cool blue evening follows day.
'Certainly this enchanting lady is no murderess, responsible for the death of his predecessor!' Nevertheless, Sir Bryan is sworn to do his duty and investigate. Keeping the peace will be doubly difficult, however, with his own heart at war - and wanting the incomparable Megan more with every beat. But in these desperate times, Bryan may be the only man the lovely, secretive lady can turn to - and, by baring her soul, unleash a passion that burns in both of them as brilliant and hot as the stars in the night sky.
