St. Martin's Paperbacks
Kev Merripen has longed for the beautiful, well-bred Winnifred Hathaway ever since her family rescued him from the brink of death when he was just a boy. But this handsome Gypsy is a man of mysterious origins—and he fears that the darkness of his past could crush delicate, luminous Win. So Kev refuses to submit to temptation…and before long Win is torn from him by a devastating twist of fate.
Then, Win returns to England…only to find that Kev has hardened into a man who will deny love at all costs. Meantime, an attractive, seductive suitor has set his sights on Win. It’s now or never for Kev to make his move. But first, he must confront a dangerous secret about his destiny—or risk losing the only woman he has lived for…
She was a frail, beautiful, English lady. He was a dark, foreboding gypsy. He worked for her family. He would do anything for them. Anything for her. But he could never have her. When the doctor who helped her proposes, Merripen knows he must let her go, though she is his, in his heart.
