Her marriage saved her family . . . but could she save the husband she had grown to love?
Clarissa Berefont had never met Alexander St. John Sinclair, Earl of Balmorrow, but it made no difference. He required a wife, and Clare's family required the generous terms he proposed in his written offer of marriage. With her heart steeled to duty, Clare set off for the borderlands. But she never expected Castle Balmorrow to be so utterly barbaric and her giant of a husband to be such a Philistine and Bedlamite!
Yet once Clare discovered the true Alex, a man of tenderness and courage whose pride and honor rules his head and whose disastrous first marriage tortured his heart, she became determined to secure wedded bliss for them both. And she might very well be able to do it, if she could keep Balmorrow from being hanged for treason first . . .
