Is love enough to light up the darkness?
Lady Eleanora Smythe is participating in her very last season, her last chance to make a fortuitous match and escape the control of her domineering guardian, Lord Holster, the Earl of Greenbriar.
Lord Thomas Greely only months back from the Napoleonic Wars returns home to find the England he left behind much changed. His beloved brother is dead, his widow cast out. Thomas must find the woman to make matters right…
But Thomas finds more than he bargained for, when he finally locates his brother’s widow. She is the companion to the beautiful and vulnerable Lady Eleanora. He is drawn to Lady Eleanora in a way that he cannot explain and she needs his help.
Time is ticking, and soon the Earl of Greenbriar will have control. Eleanora finds herself not only fighting for her life, but her sanity!
Can Thomas save her life without losing his own?
