Blind since birth, Elle Duncan has known only darkness, but her beautiful spirit brims with light. A terrible accident has hindered her father’s ability to provide for his wife and three daughters-in a bleak desperation to restore his livelihood-he’s turned to their most unlikely savior-their brooding and dark lord.
Don Rossetti is bad-tempered with an equally dark countenance to match. Harboring a dark secret, he’s comfortable spending his existence in solitude, but something about the peasant man who has come daringly seeking his aid, peaks his curiosity and suddenly loneliness is no longer of appeal. He grudgingly agrees to assist the poor farmer but for his generous deed a price must be paid-a debt that Elle Duncan must pay.
