It all began with a promise While his good friend lay in his arms dying, the last words that came from his lips were "Please find Brienna and take care of her." He was entrusted with his friends' young daughter. With that promise, Gavin has come to realize that he agreed to more than he bargained for. He never imagined this young child could grow into a such a defiant beauty bent on avenging her fathers death. She fought with him, disobeyed his every command , had a rebellious nature that unnerved him but, with it all conquered his heart. The day Brienna's father died she swore the man responsible, Lord Alrec Defoe would pay. She vowed no one stand between her one desire. Until her heart betrayed her and became an ally to Gavin. Between ardent battles of wits and fiery words. Her defiance angered him. But, her beauty and passion melted his heart. Slowly but surely she was going to lose this battle of the heart to him.
