Will a second chance at love be enough to heal old wounds?

He failed everyone…especially her.

Henry Livingstone, the Marquess of Heartford, was unavoidably transformed by the fire that claimed his sister’s life. Haunted by his failures, he fled his home and the woman he loved. Now a mere shadow of his former self, Henry returns to find his world altered beyond his wildest imagination. Determined to restore his family’s wealth, he sets out to fight his demons, old and new. What he does not expect are the embers of passion he once felt for Lady Julia St. John to reignite. Now he finds himself trying to prove that he will do anything to win her back, even if it means giving up his own life.

He left her, abandoned, alone…ruined.

It has been three years since Lady Julia St. John was discarded eight days before her wedding. Once a diamond of the first water, she finds herself a victim of cruel gossip, shunned from all good society. Determined to be a new person and leave her old self behind, she buries herself in her family and rediscovers her passion for painting. Never did she imagine that she would ever have to see the Marquess of Heartford again. But fate is a cruel mistress, and she now finds herself living in the same home as the man who destroyed her.

Will Henry and Julia find their way back to one another, despite their troubled and heartbreaking past, or will a force more sinister than they know keep them apart forever?

EXCERPT

This was his opportunity to admit why he was back in London. He needed her to know that he was now worthy of her. That after years of wandering the world, he began to feel whole again, but he was not complete, not yet.

Not without her.

Julia paused for a second before she took the sketch pad and started walking toward him. “I wouldn’t have a drink with you if my life depended on it.”

She tried to walk past, but he took her by the arm, halting her exit. His body vibrated from being so close to her after all this time. His member hardened in need at the scent of her—lavender and citrus. “We need to talk, Julia,” he said slowly, trying to fight off his arousal.

“We have nothing to say to each other, Lord Heartford.” She pulled her arm out of his grasp and tried to walk around him.

Shifting to the side, he blocked her way, determined to not have this animosity between them his entire stay. “I know you are upset with me leaving, but you must know what I did was best—”

Her head snapped up, and he was distinctly aware of their height difference. In the past, he had loved how he towered over her and how perfectly she fit in his arms. He would often rest his chin on top of her head whenever they were close. It made him feel like her protector. And he loved it because she was his.

“How would you know what’s best for me? Did you ask for my opinion, my comfort, anything before you recklessly ruined my life?”

Two of her fingers dug into his chest hard. The fire in her eyes was so scorching he had to look away for fear of being burned.

“Spare us both the damsel in distress routine,” he gritted out through clenched teeth, not wanting to fight with her. “I know you do not believe Amelia meant anything to me, but she was my sister.”

“You think I don’t know that? I see the evidence of your connection every day when the same green eyes you and she shared stare at me from across the breakfast table. The guilt I feel for how I reacted to her is as ever present as your own.” Her breasts heaved with the weight of her breaths. “Your guilt is nothing compared to mine.” He stared down at her, trying to ignore the pull he felt to her, even now.

Julia took a step back, her lips trembled slightly. “Perhaps not, but do not come here and pretend you care anything about me. We both know the truth.”

“Julia wait,” He tried to stop her but failed as she left the room, quietly closing the door behind her.

The sound of it so deafening it reverberated through him, loud and demanding. The weight of her words, the consequences of his own actions felt like stones on his shoulders. Winning her back wouldn’t be easy, he couldn’t even have a civil conversation with her.

None of it mattered because he would never quit.

FIRMLY UPON THE SHELF…

Miss Olivia Redfield labors under no misapprehension that anything other than spinsterhood lies in her future. Not for lack of dowry, or breeding, or education, but because of one tiny flaw…. one might even call it… a curse. Removed from society for this ill-fated defect, she’s resigned herself to caring for others in a somewhat dreary existence. Until, that is, she falls for the charming but unattainable, Lord Kingsley.

TOO MUCH TIME ON HIS HANDS…

Gabriel Fellowes, Earl of Kingsley is doing a favor for a friend by overseeing the dangerous–– but promising––mine on the border of Viscount Hallowell’s property. With time to spare, he finds himself irresistibly intrigued by the viscount’s daughter, Miss Olivia Redfield, and delights himself in their mutual provocation. In no position to promise more than a dalliance, but unable to stay away, Gabriel takes the unprecedented step of befriending a woman.

IS FRIENDSHIP EVEN POSSIBLE…?

Their flirtatious attachment threatens to erupt in passion, but duty and honor forbid anything more. Will love be defeated when tragedy strikes, or can Olivia and Gabriel overcome Society’s dictates and put the notion of Olivia’s curse to rest once and for all?

 
 
Not moving his gaze from her face, he lifted the dandelion and traced it along the curve of her cheek.
Her chin.
And then her lips.
“Is this what friends do, Gabriel?” Her smile faded as she gazed back at him.
 
Friends? No. The thoughts in his mind had nothing to do with friendship. 
And then she sighed and turned her face away. “I’ve never had a male friend before. Do you have many lady friends?”
He’d never been interested in friendship with the ladies of his acquaintance.  Pursuing such with most ladies of the ton might be considered dangerous. 
Nonetheless, he had taken risks with a few widows and of course, some select lady birds of the demi monde. “A few.” He answered vaguely, drawing the petals along the corner of her eye now. 
“Friends do not kiss, do they Gabriel?”
He chuckled. “Generally, no.” 
But then he trailed the flower to the pink flesh of her lips, and when her mouth parted for him, all thoughts of laughter fled.
“You wish to kiss me now, don’t you?” Her voice dropped to almost a whisper and her slightly hooded gaze met his with unabashed honesty. “I am not mistaken. You are very close to me. There is something…” Her voice trailed off as she seemed to search for the words.
“Something?” Her innocence delighted him.
“Heavy.” She said. “Warm.”
“In the air?”
 
“No.” Her eyes narrowed slightly. “You.”
