Gabriella Donnelly lives a charmed life and her guardian, Adrian McGregor, has taken care to ensure it continues, securing her place in society by marrying her to a man who can give her everything—everything, except Adrian’s love. More
For centuries Adrian McGregor has walked in the shadows, hiding from the memories of a life that was stolen from him... Until he found her—a child that offered a fulfillment of that life.
Gabriella Donnelly was orphaned at the tender age of four when her father and mother, The Duchess of Pembroke, died from a mysterious illness. Left to the elements, wandering the banks to the Thames, she had given up on life. Then she found him, the man who delivered her from poverty... and into the hands of the devil.
Watching her grow into a woman has been a privilege, now Adrian must protect Gabriella from an abusive husband and the Angel of Death, his maker, Moira. More importantly, he must protect her from the feelings that her presence has stirred to life deep within his icy heart.
