They can escape winter's cold, but their nemesis has a long, icy reach.
Richard and Rose, Book 8
On a ship bound for Portugal with her children and the man she loves, Rose should be blissfully happy. Except Richard treats her like she's made of porcelain. She's recovered from the childbed fever that nearly killed her, yet he won't share her bed and it's driving her mad.
To win him back body and soul, she resolves to use every wicked, seductive trick he's taught her. Until a possible attempted murder on board puts them both on alert for the trouble that seems to dog their every move.
Richard is almost relieved to have something to investigate. He loves Rose too much to risk losing her—which is exactly what could happen if he gets her pregnant again. When it becomes clear a series of accidents is no such thing, they realize an old enemy has caught up with them.
It's imperative for Richard and Rose to work together to defeat this foe, but their new distance could prove their undoing. Especially when Mother Nature conspires to make them endure one last, desperate test of their love…
