Confronting the darkness of his past, Gerard finds the light of his future.
When an orphan bearing the unmistakable stamp of his family's features shows up at his country estate, Everett Gerard, who has successfully avoided his ancestral estate for years, must return to the Abbey. But unexpected surprises and delights await him in a place he'd loathed since a terrible incident he'd witnessed years before.
Miles Kenway is content in his role as the Abbey’s bailiff, until his even-keeled life is disrupted by the arrival of a bastard child dumped on his doorstep. Miles’s anger at Gerard’s negligence of both estate and child erupts when servant and master meet.
Heated arguments about the land and the orphan’s future only mask their intense and growing attraction--but giving into desire threatens to destroy the delicate balance of master and servant. Just as the wild lad has come to trust his new caretakers, his security with them is thrown into peril. Can the two men who’ve come to love the odd boy find a way to protect him and create a home?

Once again the dynamic duo of Devon & Dee take us on another journey into the past. This one has past murder, a strange but interesting child, intriguing characters, and a working relationship that has the potential to blossom into something we all desire, if only they can bypass their own stubborn ways. The story of Everett and Miles starts out as the typical master/servant relationship but becomes so much more and then you throw in young Ipsial and the dynamic of story changes and grows that had this reader hooked. Another great entry into both my historical fiction library and my Devon & Dee shelf.
enjoyable read of love, patience, and a unconventional family
