Even after she is rescued by Garrett McKinley, she is determined to survive on her own. But there’s something about the mysterious laird that is drawing her in just as she is determined to push him away.
Wade and Chloe
After a terrible event left her pregnant and alone, Chloe had sworn to herself she would never trust a man again. When her son inherits both title and land from his biological father, Chloe pours all her energy into ensuring he turns out nothing like the man who sired him. But when a man shows up on the doorsteps of her castle insisting she is in danger and begging her to trust him, she is tempted to let him in.
Leon and Ashleigh
Dr. Ashleigh Hutchinson has made a good life for herself and her daughter after her jerk of a boyfriend ran out on them. That life is turned upside down one night when a women shows up on her doorstep begging for her help and Ashleigh finds herself in the middle of a castle, in the company of a dying man and her best friend who’s been missing for six months
Her husband was trying to fight them off, but this was a farming village. These were not warriors and would have been an easy conquest for this group.
If there was one thing Leon hated, it was cowards. And going after a group of innocent people who couldn’t defend themselves was the biggest show of cowardice he could imagine.
He and his men launched into battle, cutting down all those who sought to harm his people. They moved smoothly together, as men who had spent nearly every waking moment training.
The fighting came to a stop and Leon searched for anyone else who might do them harm. He was just sheathing his sword when a sharp pain shot through his body.
What? He looked down to see a blade protruding from his stomach.
Is that screaming? Why are they screaming again? He fell to his knees, his vision blurry as the battle raged around him once more.
Why couldn’t he seem to focus on anything?
“Come Leon, let’s get you back. Lady Carissa can help you!”
“There were more hiding we’ve got them but we must go now.”
“But the people.” He insisted.
“We will be fine.” One of the men at his side had been the husband fighting for his family.
His mind was racing, completely unable to latch on to a single thought. Was this dying? Was he going to die today?
