"When a Chattan male falls in love, strike his heart with
fire from above . . . "
They call him Lord Lyon, proud, determined–and
cursed. He is in need of a bride, but if he falls in love,
he dies. His fervent hope is that by marrying–and
having a son–without love, perhaps he can break the
curse's chains forever.
Enter beautiful Thea Martin–a duke's headstrong,
errant daughter and society's most brilliant matchmaker.
Years ago, she and Lyon were inseparable, until he
disappeared from her life without a word. Now she is
charged with finding Lyon's bride–a woman he cannot
love for a man Thea could love too well.
