Jared, Viscount Ravenswood, has come to terms that the
scars on his face scare people, and that he'll always be
alone. Except, that is, for Hannah, the little girl he's
chosen to raise as her own. If it weren't for having
promised Hannah's mother, Marry, he would not even try to
contact Calantha, the widow of the man who raped Marry
while in their employ.
When she discovers why Marry left her home, Calantha feels
guilty since she was unable to protect her. Once she meets
Hannah, she falls in love with the little girl. It doesn't
take long for Jared and Calantha to realize that they are
very attracted to each other and by getting married,
they'll ensure that they can both be with Hannah. But their
happy union may be ripped apart when Hannah's life is in
danger and Calantha is accused of the crimes.

and the breathtaking mystery that is her life. For Jared,

most intimate whisper of all... Take me
