Lady Madison Blake made a more than a few mistakes.
She's unwed and pregnant.
The father of her child is dead.
The man she thought a hero has turned out to be her worst nightmare.
She's in desperate need of help, but by the time the next hero comes along, Madison is low on trust.
It doesn't help that the new hero seems to be just as villainous as the last.
Even worse is her growing attraction to this dark stranger.
Lord Leonard Childs didn't arrive in Oxford to save a damsel and her child, yet he's doing it.
But along with finding a murderer, he's also trying to find a safe place of his own and Madison's eyes seem to promise that.
One terrible decision after another brings these two together, but with secrets spilling as easily as blood, it's going to take trust to make it to the end.
Will Leo's secret destroy what he has with Madison?
Or will it be his own fears that finally do them in?
