Tenderhearted Gillian Barnett agreed to marry a virtual stranger to fulfill a long-ago promise. Powerful warlock Mason Blacksword was the epitome of Gillian's every fantasy, but although he knew as well as she did that the terms of their marriage required making a baby, he refused to be a father!
It was bad enough Mason was honor-bound to marry a woman who'd been chosen for him, but having fatherhood foisted upon him was even worse! It wasn't what he wanted, yet just being near Gillian made him long for a closeness sure to bring ruin to them both...unleashing a passion greater than even his powerful
magic could withstand.
