Desperate to help her widowed sister and baby escape a deadly pursuer, Lady Chastity Ware dresses as a highwayman and captures the first coach to travel down the road. Coming face-to-face with its occupant, the arrogant aristocrat, Cyn Malloren, she orders him to drive her to a remote cottage. Little does Chastity realize that after long months of recovering from his war wounds, the devilishly handsome Cyn is looking for adventure, and being abducted by a cocky young highwayman-obviously a young woman in disguise-is even more than he had hoped for. Willingly he is drawn into her desperate plan… and helplessly he is seduced by her lovely sensual presence. Yet he is obsessed with learning the bitter secrets that torment her - and determined to show her that the passion that drives him is a love that will bind them together forever.
