On the cliffs of 19th-century Cornwall, a spirited, impetuous young woman is torn between the honor of her family and the longing of her heart.England, 1811A tarnished reputation. A distant home.

And when her carriage, pursued by her would-be fiancE, is caught in a storm, she quickly accepts the help of a dark stranger. Anything to get back to Cornwall.But Rowan Curnow is not exactly a stranger. He's not quite a gentleman either. Class disparity once kept him from courting Elizabeth...?ven if it didn't keep him from kissing her.The couple elude their pursuers and reach Bastion Point, Elizabeth's future inheritance and the one place she calls home. But in the very act of spiriting her to safety, Rowan has jeopardized Elizabeth's inheritance-if her grandfather ever learns she spent the night, however innocently, in the company of a man.
