All Emma Wentworth wanted was to find a love match.
But life had a different plan for her. As of twenty she already had elopement etched on her list of sins and the betrayal from the man she thought she had loved.
Humiliated and heartbroken, she vowed never to rely on her emotions again, that is until the U.S. Marshal, Mr. Johnathan Hawk, arrives in London and the familiar stirring in her heart awakens the feelings she worked hard to bury.
He is a breath of fresh air and wild, but she reminds herself that emotion and men only brought her nothing but heartache and gossip in her life. Yet there is something deeper than a fleeting desire for the handsome stranger, something very familiar in his eyes, and she fears she may fall madly in love with the wrong man—again.
