Isabella Farrington's marriage was hasty. For all her new husband's riches, Lord Draven Winthrop is whispered about, avoided, and feared. Yet Isabella is drawn to Draven's dark good looks, his strength, the charm he can turn on as easily as she can blink. The impoverished daughter of an Egyptologist, she knows there are rumors about her, too, and the amulet she wears. Nothing more than superstitious babble...
But when Isabella returns to Draven's remote coastal manor, she senses there is something more at work in the grim gardens of Thorncliff Towers than superstition. Draven is passionate and seductive, but he has a brutal, uncontrolled side too, and a history of secrets. To live in peace she must discover the reasons behind a gypsy curse and a mother's scorn. Especially when she learns Draven believes his sweet young bride is doomed to a fate even darker than his own...
“Thank you for saving me,” Isabella whispered, blinking against her tears.
Lines of concern creased Draven's forehead. “I don’t know what I would do if I ever lost you. This has made me more determined than ever to convince you to stay.”
She watched his pupils dilate, thanks to the painkiller Dr. Lamstein had administered. “Did you capture the wolf that got inside the house?” she asked in a frightened voice.
