A burning obsession, a rejected proposal, and a desperate Darcy.
After Lizzy rejects Darcy’s proposal at Hunsford, he can’t accept it. He’s lost everyone in the world who matters to him, and he can’t allow Lizzy to slip away, too. In desperation, he kidnaps her with the intent of taking her to Gretna Green before an extended stay at the familial castle. Lizzy refuses his offer of marriage again, leaving him to enact a more desperate plan.
Locked in the Scottish castle with Darcy, a man driven by demons and possessed by melancholia, Lizzy fights to deny the pull he exerts and her own passionate nature. Darcy sets about unlocking her inhibitions, but can she ever risk letting him win her heart?
While Abbey sometimes writes sweet JAFF, this is strictly sensual. Please be advised it has a darker tone than Abbey’s other works.
