Love is an adventure for only the bravest hearts...
Left destitute by her father's death, Rose Owens finds shelter and security as a companion to the eccentric Lady Belfrost. Rose once dreamed of getting married and having a family of her own, but now she knows she will likely live the rest of her life a spinster. Until Lady Belfrost's nephew arrives. Though she tries to resist, Rose is drawn to him. The handsome rogue stirs to life emotions and secrets she's desperate to forget.
Mr. Gabriel Connor travels the world discovering new treasures and adventures, ignoring his great aunt's urgings to settle down in England. But when he meets Miss Owens, his restless soul is stirred anew. There is more to the lovely Rose than she reveals and being trapped with her in a hunting lodge may be his greatest adventure yet.
Yearning for the freedom of the far horizon, Gabriel must choose between destiny and duty...and his dreams of freedom. Even if the price of those dreams is love.
