The Avenging Earl Alyson Haydon had been a mere seventeen when she broke the heart of Damon Ashford. It had broken her heart as well when she was brutally commanded to wed another.
But that was years ago. Alyson was a young widow now, and Damon had returned to claim the title held by Alyson's late husband and the manor that was her home. He held her fate and fortune in his hands, and Alyson could not erase or escape the bitter anger in his burning dark eyes. For it was far too late to reveal to him the love she had been forced to hide...the love for a man whose own love had been turned into a need for revenge . . . and even though he would never believe it, she still loved him as much as she ever did . . .
