Ash betrayed his love’s greatest secret to save her life.
Now Sheela is in the hands of Duke Schaever, and his every attempt to save her has failed. At least she is still alive. Even if the most dangerous man in England has her in his grasp.
In a last ditch rescue effort, Ash agrees to complete another task for the Misters. This task is more dangerous than all the others, including stealing a magical item from a vault guarded by a dragon.
He must steal away the Duke’s betrothed, adding kidnapping to his already long list of sins. Ash will do anything to liberate Sheela and win her forgiveness for sharing her secret.
