A strong, resilient woman who learned to survive in a world of betrayal. Emma Cadbury had been an innocent, a whore, a charity worker and a surgeon. She chose a life without love until she saved a dying soldier in a charity ward.
A scarred soldier who fought to redeem himself from the horrors he'd committed. Brandon Rohan had lost himself to drugs and degradation, wanting to die, and only one person could save him. But she'd disappeared.
A love neither of them wants, and a passion so strong it could burn down the world. Now they've come together again, but he doesn't remember, and she doesn't want to. But someone is trying to kill her, and Brandon is the one man who can save her.
England in 1840, where no one is what they seem.
