A determined man on a singular path, Harry Bryce is not pleased when the Crown awards him a title, nor is he gratified to learn of an unexpected inheritance in Cornwall. Even less welcome is the mandatory sabbatical from his position at the War Office, just when England needs every man in the fight against Napoleon’s subversive agents. Chafing at the unwanted holiday, Harry uses the time to inspect his new property, only to be entangled in the affairs of a young Cornish woman whose family and home are threatened with destruction. Compelled by his compassionate nature to assist her, he is caught in a complex situation that thoroughly disrupts his carefully ordered life.
In contending with repeated attempts on her brother’s life, an uncle unashamedly stripping the estate of income, and a greedy earl who is desperate to mine copper on her land, Kerra Trevaine needs all the strength and fortitude she possesses. But the arrival of the mysterious Mr. Bryce is perhaps the greatest danger she faces. For while he stands firmly against Kerra’s enemies, the dangerously attractive gentleman threatens to win Kerra’s heart—and that may be the most challenging test of all.

About the Author
From the moment I stepped into my first school library I became enthralled with the idea that wonderful stories resided in all those books. The enchantment never faded. Amazing worlds full of adventure and history were mine for the reading. The imaginary characters living in my imagination were nothing unusual—obviously a great many people lived with stories in their heads and were kind enough to share them. That I could also share my tales and actually write a book wasn’t something I considered until quite recently, but I finally began writing seriously about six years ago. The first books were written in collaboration with my sister, Diana. (“Lord Waring’s Quest” and “An Angel for St. Clair”). Our interests have diverged at present and I now write independently under my own name. Married for many years to my own personal hero, a doting grandmother and fond parent, when not writing I enjoy puttering in my garden, cooking, and relaxing on the back porch of our Florida home—with a good book, of course!
