The national bestselling author delivers a Regency romance with “a memorable heroine, steamy lovemaking and delightful scenes involving white magic” (Publishers Weekly).
During her years of exile in Wales, Serafina’s only solace has been the golden-haired lover who has haunted her dreams. She even convinced herself that he must be the man she is set to marry the next day. But during a moonlight walk in the woods she comes across a dark stranger who shatters her hopes with a kiss and a devastating revelation of the feelings of her betrothed.
Preparing to marry a woman he doesn’t know, Aiden Delaware, Earl of Aubrey, seeks solace in the woods, stumbling upon a maiden as beautiful as a fairy queen. He tells her his darkest secret: He already despises his betrothed and has no wish to be forced into an arranged marriage.
The next day, Aiden learns the shocking truth: The beauty from the woods he’d loved at first sight turns out to be the unwanted fiancée, who now knows his true feelings. Despite this inauspicious beginning, Aiden and Serafina gradually discover that marriage is more than a contract, and love can span more than a lifetime.
