(From the publisher):
Handsome, quiet and more scholarly than his boisterous brother, Clayton Trevelyan was crushed when his young love Marisa Granthan ended their engagement. Vowing never to be hurt like that again, he sets off for war and becomes a hardened soldier. When he returns to England to find a wife, the last person he wants to see is Marisa. But there she is, on his doorstep, telling him that she has overheard a plot to murder him.
Marisa is terrified for his life, and heartbroken over her rash decision to end their engagement years ago. This time, she is determined not to let him get away. But Clayton stubbornly refuses to get involved, preferring to marry for convenience, not for love. What he doesn't count on is the fiery attraction between them, which hasn't dimmed over the passing years. It will be up to Marisa to save the life of the man she loves, and show him that they are meant to be together.
