Clayton Trevelyan, Earl Huntingdon, always did what was expected of him, until the day his beautiful, impetuous, eccentric fiancée Marisa Grantham ended their engagement. No one expected the quiet young scholar known as The Saint to purchase a commission and march off to fight in the Peninsula. Seven years later, Clay returned home a war hero and former spy determined to find an appropriate bride—his last promise to his father. Hardened by war, the once shy young man knew precisely what he needed in a bride. She must be quiet, dignified, intelligent, and above all have no illusions of marrying for affection. After losing Marisa, he swore never again to allow a woman close to his heart.
When Marisa overhears two men discussing plans to murder Clayton, she swears she will do anything to keep the stubborn Earl alive, even if that involves kidnapping him. No longer the naïve young woman who allowed her one and only love to walk away, Marisa is determined not to lose him a second time. Yet as she fights her way past his defenses and struggles to heal the wounds scrawled across Clay’s gentle soul, a murderer lurks in the shadows, threatening both their lives.
