He pledged his honor to keep her safe . . . Returning home to Cornwall after an unspeakable tragedy, Sir Gideon Trevithick comes upon a defiant beauty in danger and vows to protect her whatever the cost. He's dismayed to discover that she's none other than Lady Charis Weston, England's wealthiest heiress—and that the only way to save her from the violent stepbrothers determined to steal her fortune is to wed her himself! Now Gideon must hide the dark secrets of his life from the bride he desires more with every heartbeat. She promised to show him how to love—and desire—again . . . Charis has heard all about Gideon, the dangerously handsome hero with the mysterious past. She's grateful for his help but utterly unwilling to endure a marriage of convenience—especially to a man whose touch leaves her breathless. Desperate to drive him mad with passion, she would do anything to make Gideon lose control—and fall captive to irresistible, undeniable sin.

The main male protagonist, Gideon, is a recently released prisoner of war in a confl...
Had a good start a semi slow middle and a wonderful ending
3.5 stars The story itself was entertaining, a little angsty, but something was missing. Gideon's problems were resolved too quickly to be believable. He was horribly tortured and had an understandable deep aversion to being touched. I find it odd that as horribly tortured that he was, why there we...
