Driven apart by the very passion that brought them together, neither of them knew love could be so powerful or so painful . . .
She gave him love . . . and he betrayed her. Then a shocking tragedy left Natasha Simonov shattered. Suffering and loss only made her stronger . . . until, years later, the life she created came crashing down around her. Drawn into an exotic world of danger, intrigue, and adventure, she never dreamed that the man who betrayed her, the man she vowed to forget, would be the one to risk all, the one to show her the power of love and the magic of forgiveness.
He taught her heartbreak . . . and losing her almost destroyed him. Lord Trevor Hamilton discovered too late that he could not live without her. His all-engrossing passion for her doomed him to spend the remainder of his life in torment, haunted by the memory of a woman he could never have. Though he became a wealthy duke in the House of Lords -- a man of great influence and power -- tragedy made him driven and bitter. But then a voice from the past called out to him, forcing him to choose between all he possessed and a memory. Only Natasha's forgiveness and love could save him . . . Only then would they have what they had too long been denied.
