A chance at redemption? Handsome and fierce warrior Michael Avenel has been to hell and back during the Peninsular War. Now paralysed from the waist down, he is convinced his life is over until a desperate young woman comes to his door seeking help one fateful night. Beautiful Bryony Wells was forced to endure an abusive marriage at the hands of a depraved husband for the sake of her sons. Now widowed, with her eldest boy set to inherit their father's property, she grows ever more fearful for the children's safety at the hands of her evil in-laws. Fleeing from their family mansion to start a decent new life where they can grow up happy and loved, she stumbles into Michael's life...and heart. Working as his secretary, Bryony finds him a model employer, with his mastery soon extending to her body and soul. For as their intimacy increases, she is certain she is falling in love with her enigmatic employer, and that her feelings might actually be returned. With Bryony working by his side, Michael has a reason to try to recover his health. The beginnings of hope that the woman he has come to love above all else might actually be his for the asking. But once he has Bryony, he will do anything to keep her, as Bryony's evil brother in law Derek will stop at nothing to secure the family fortunes as his own. Can Michael ever be the man Bryony needs him to be? Or will their love become just another casualty of Michael's dreadful long war he has fought so hard for, and nearly died for? Can Bryony ever escape the ghosts from her past, and through her love for Michael, help him escape from his own?
