I will return to you . . .
Sixteen-year-old Lady Brandice Townsend fears that Lord Quentin’s promise may be impossible to keep. He’s about to depart for the battlefield, leaving his adoring friend and his genteel life behind. Four years later, with London’s most eligible suitors fawning at her feet, Brandi rejects life in the capital to return to the simple country haven she loves. But Emerald Manor is no longer a welcoming refuge, and tragedy strikes without warning.
When he went to fight Napoleon, Quentin had a premonition of doom. Now, his world shattered by his parents’ violent death, the grief-stricken soldier must unravel a tangled web of secrets and lies. But it is Brandi whose safety he prizes above all else—Brandi, who has grown into a passionate, desirable woman. He fears she’ll never be his again, unless he can unmask the truth and risk everything for love.
