Then, one stormy evening, she is called to a nearby estate to tend to an ailing horse. No one has ever seen the reclusive new owner of Stonelair. Wyndham Ashley Conrad, the heir to a mining and chemical fortune, was once an international playboy, celebrated for his handsome looks and devil-may-care charm. Now he is a scarred, solitary figure who hides his painful secret from the world.
Yet from the moment Wyn and Valerie meet-one exhilarating, unforgettable night-something sparks to life between them. The powerful attraction that develops will take them beyond the fears of the past to a place of freedom and everlasting love.
