Andrew Alexander will do anything to protect those he loves…
After a tragic yachting accident leaves him wracked with guilt, Andrew Alexander, Earl of Greymoor, is certain he doesn’t deserve to be around his family, let alone the beautiful, forthright Astrid Worthington. He wanders for years, not allowing himself respite from his self-imposed exile until Astrid is safely married. He returns home to find that the only woman he’s ever loved has been recently—and mysteriously—widowed.
…especially from himself
Astrid refuses to pine after Andrew leaves for the Continent. She finds an amiable husband and contents herself with a cordial if unexciting marriage. When Astrid is abruptly widowed, she finds Andrew will do anything to protect her not only from her enemies, but also from the truth of his dark past. Can she find safety in the arms of a man who seems determined to break her heart all over again?
