Kidnapping a novice from her convent was only one sin among his many, Lucian Barret mused, but in desiring his brother's intended bride, the offense grew darker. 'Twas much to atone for, true. Why then did his passion for Melissande seem so pure and fated...and right?
Mere weeks before her final vows as a nun, Melissande Deverell found herself held fast in the arms of Lucian Barret, her childhood companion. The idyllic visions of marriage to his brother he claimed were her destiny did little to calm her. For Lucian was now a warrior of great prowessand compelling sensual charm that bestirred her cloistered heart to things forbidden!
