He’s the arrogant young lord who has it all. Not anymore. She’s the unassuming, quiet girl he grew up with, but now she’s no longer a little girl. She’s his wife. How the hell did that happen? A fateful shipwreck leaves Lord Brandon, the heir to Wolfsgate, presumed dead, then a drug addiction robs him of several years of his life. However, his step-cousin Justine finds him, helps him sober up, and brings him home to reclaim his inheritance after his parents’ death. But Wolfsgate is no longer the home he’d left behind, and dark surprises shock him at every turn—a ruined estate, a traitorous, bitter family, his fiancée married to his rival. And a wife. A wife? Justine, the thoughtful, kind girl who was his childhood friend, is now a gutsy, determined, and very desirable woman bound to him in marriage. A marriage forced upon them by their family for their own dastardly purposes. His difficult recovery makes him brutally suspicious and wary of everyone and everything, and age old jealousies and painful secrets threaten the couple at every turn. Can he truly trust Justine or is she a part of the web of lies? As husband and wife grow closer working together to salvage what’s left of their childhood home and Brandon’s inheritance, emotions and irresistible passions between them heat up and run wild. And suddenly everything shifts. The deep bond growing between them wasn’t part of their enemies’ plan. No one counted on Brandon and Justine falling in love. Not even Brandon and Justine. Wolfsgate - A sensual 18th century tale of deception and revenge, and the healing of two souls hungering for love and absolution.
