What if falling in love meant the death of the one you cared for?
Reinhart Maycott never expected to become the Marquess of Milbourne. Newly arrived in London from India, he doesn't welcome the adulation his vast wealth, power, and handsome looks inspire among the Regency elite. He has walled up his broken heart and is determined not to fall in love or marry ever again. His past has convinced him that allowing someone into his heart means death for them. But can the course of true love be stopped?
Dutiful Mariah Parbury's curiosity about his former life in India leads her into a dangerous quest to break down the walls around the marquess's heart. Her efforts turn her into a rule-breaker she hardly recognizes. Will her quest lead to love, or scandal? Or will the past that haunts him reach forward and claim her as its next victim?
Award-winning, best-selling author Gail Eastwood offers a new, expanded version of her classic Signet Regency. New scenes and characters heighten the intrigue in this heart-warming and suspenseful sweet romance.
Note: Harriet Pritchard, a character in Gail's book The Captain's Dilemma, also appears in this one, which is set a few years later.
