He swore he'd resist her... How long before he gives in to temptation? Independent Tinley Markham is back in the kingdom of Liri for one reason: to uphold the marriage agreement her beloved father made - or risk losing everything... Honour and guilt dictate that King Alexius helps the woman once promised to his late brother find a husband. He doesn't expect impossible Tinley to soon consume his every waking moment. And the fire raging between them is combustible enough to destroy everything. Even a king's iron self-control.
