Overview

Her past was a dark country

And Iantha Kethley was trapped at its borders, never quite able to escape the one defining moment of her life. Until the day she held Robert Armstrong at gunpoint—and he offered her a future she'd never dared imagine!

Rob Armstrong, Lord Duncan, swore he'd not be mere protector of Iantha Kethley, but true partner as well, for this sweetly vulnerable woman had a spine of surprising steel—a necessary attribute to face the danger that stalked her still. Her need drew him to her; her courage held him by her side—where he'd willingly remain, bound by honor, passion…and love!

In 1807, Widower Lord Rob Armstrong heads home to his isolated estate Eyrie when he sees a carriage containing a young woman trapped in snow. He offers to help, but she points a gun at him. Still, he rescues her and her lame horse just prior to an avalanche. Rob takes wary Iantha Kethley to his home just before a blizzard hits. He explains that there are no women present at this time as he just returned from India.---- After a few days in his abode without a chaperone, Rob takes Iantha home where her worried family greets her in love. Rob asks her father for her hand in marriage, but her dad explains that six years ago Iantha was raped by masked aristocrats. Perhaps because his own child died, Rob still insists they wed and vows to Iantha that he will go slowly with her until she is comfortable with his touch. As Rob and Iantha fall in love and his kindness touch her soul, she begins to feel at ease, but her worst nightmare is back.---- Regency romance readers will appreciate this strong tale of a wonderful nurturing champion who helps his beloved recover from the horrors of rape. The story line is at its best when Rob gently heals Iantha¿s soul with his tenderness. Iantha makes the story line succeed as the audience can understand her fears of anyone but a child¿s touch and her need to control her situation including carrying a weapon. Though the villain¿s return adds suspense and a chance at his comeuppance, this confrontation takes away from the beauty of a fabulous historical that accentuates the healing power of love.---- Harriet Klausner
