Captivated by the stunning events manager at the hotel where a family wedding is being arranged, a jaded security expert must come to terms with the beautiful woman’s secrets, when the past collides with the present and puts both their lives in jeopardy.
History isn’t always carved in stone…
Since losing the woman who owned his heart and shared his soul over a decade ago, Sir Guy Somerton has dedicated himself to his work and the defence of the country he loves.
Maddie Scott’s job as the events manager at a country house hotel revolves around happiness, celebration and organisation—worlds away from her previous life, where one false move could have meant instant death… if she was lucky.
When his niece asks him to accompany her on a visit to a potential venue for her forthcoming wedding, Guy doesn’t expect to meet a woman who reignites a fire he’s long believed extinguished, but for Maddie, the encounter presents her with an impossible situation and a temptation she can’t resist.
A single word threatens to destroy their relationship. For that relationship to survive, Guy and Maddie must overcome devastating secrets from the past. When danger comes calling, they must work together to protect innocent lives, and ensure that one life in particular has a future.
