A hero worshipped.
Brooke Valen has resigned herself to a life of adoring Samsyn Cimarron from afar. The massive warrior has been her knight in shining armor since the night she and her family arrived on the island of Arcadia, forced to take new identities and blend into the strange new land to avoid a terrorist bounty on her father head. Though Brooke has grown into a woman and devoted herself to learning battle tactics in order to earn Syn respect, it is clear he'll see her as nothing more than the scrawny teen who washed up on his shore six years ago.
A prince scarred.
Samsyn Cimarron has all but taken a sacred oath never to marry. Disillusioned by the sham of his parents' union, fairytale love is nothing but a concept for dreamers and story books. Instead, Syn has devoted himself to things he can control, like his country security and a long string of one-night lovers. But when Brooke Valen serves on his temporary security detail and almost dies in the doing, all his careful mandates are shattered and one night of naked passion with her doesn't feel like enough. But it has to be. His desires are dark and wicked, unworthy of a beauty like Brooke.
A fate sealed.
When Arcadia security hinges on Samsyn taking a bride, he reluctantly seals the deal with Brooke but vows that even his ring on her finger won't make him take her body again.
A love realized?
Though married to the man of her dreams, Brooke has never felt more alone in her life. Is the flame of their love strong enough to shatter Samsyn darkness? Can the beauty of her soul reach to the beast in his? Or will she have to prove her love by confronting the assassin who been sent to finish off her family for good?
