He failed everyone…especially her.
Henry Livingstone, the Marquess of Heartford, was unavoidably transformed by the fire that claimed his sister’s life. Haunted by his failures, he fled his home and the woman he loved. Now a mere shadow of his former self, Henry returns to find his world altered beyond his wildest imagination. Determined to restore his family’s wealth, he sets out to fight his demons, old and new. What he does not expect are the embers of passion he once felt for Lady Julia St. John to reignite. Now he finds himself trying to prove that he will do anything to win her back, even if it means giving up his own life.
He left her, abandoned, alone…ruined.
It has been three years since Lady Julia St. John was discarded eight days before her wedding. Once a diamond of the first water, she finds herself a victim of cruel gossip, shunned from all good society. Determined to be a new person and leave her old self behind, she buries herself in her family and rediscovers her passion for painting. Never did she imagine that she would ever have to see the Marquess of Heartford again. But fate is a cruel mistress, and she now finds herself living in the same home as the man who destroyed her.
Will Henry and Julia find their way back to one another, despite their troubled and heartbreaking past, or will a force more sinister than they know keep them apart forever?
