Summary

A tortured hero. A lady with the heart of a lion. And an unbreakable bond.

Elsbeth Munford is set to marry a dashing viscount until an accident destroys her life. Devastated, Ellie resigns herself to a life of spinsterhood, her beauty tainted by ugly scars.

Until one day, when she receives a proposal of marriage... from a man she loved long ago.

Frederick Lancaster, brother to the Marquess of Elmridge, returns home from war. Unable to make his peace with the past, he retreats into the dark until his brother dies unexpectedly and Frederick is thrust into a world of duty. In order to father an heir, he agrees to marry...a woman he does not remember.

Can Frederick see past Ellie's scars? Will Ellie be able to heal his wounded soul?

This tale by a USA Today best-selling author of two broken souls searching for love shows that sometimes the most painful scars are the ones we cannot see.

I wish I could return this

I've read other Bree books, but I don't remember them being so much about the bedroom act. I wanted to listen to this book, but was too embarrassed to play it out loud. I was hoked because it was a good story, but There was too much bedroom talk to play this out loud around my family! Somehow, I slipped from sweet romance into this. Although there were no gory details, I just must have forgotten to do my research. Shame on me!
