They call Sir Adrian Thorne a dangerous man--and seek to jail him for untold crimes! Yet from the moment Lady Claire Darren feels the touch of his strong hand, she knows the lord is honorable. But as soon as the mysterious, arrestingly handsome Adrian stokes her fiery passions with a kiss, he demands that the lady keep her distance. It is a command Claire is powerless to follow, for she has fallen helplessly, hopelessly in love.
Adrain can ignore his feelings no longer. He needs Claire desperately-to protect his name and heal his tormented soul. But he is a baron who must fight to regain his stolen birthright-a loner who dares not love-and he can make no promises, because the danger that stalks him could touch sweet Claire, and that must never be! But once he shares his strength with her, could he ever deny her his heart?
