A Civil War treasure hunt unites a haunted socialite and a Delaney rogue in this breathtaking novel from New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper.
Victoria Fontaine may be a vision of genteel refinement, every inch the lady, but she has secrets that make her dangerous to any man bold enough to pursue her. Falcon Delaney is no fool, and he’s more than bold enough. He’s a master of seduction, a man who lights something primal inside her and almost makes Victoria forget the brutal ravages of a war that took everything from her. She lives by the rules of an unforgiving society, and yet Falcon seduces her heart and mind until none of that matters. To her shock, Victoria finally realizes she’s willing to disregard every rule to have him—until a heartbreaking telegram sends her riding west in deadly pursuit of a killer.
Powerful, dangerous, and broodingly handsome, Falcon has spent years pursuing a stolen cache of Union gold. When he’s attacked and awakens in a locked New York cellar, gazing into the enchanting eyes of Victoria Fontaine, he’s more than willing to forget all about treasure. Torn between obsession and duty, Falcon longs to cherish Victoria, to understand the secrets and shadows he senses in her and make her his own. But, always a lone wolf, he cannot make any promises, even to the woman who has stolen his heart. Then Victoria is wrenched from his arms by a shocking blood debt—and Falcon has no choice but to follow her in a desperate race to reach her before her enemies do, to a place where danger, desire, and a shared destiny await.
