But love comes at a price, and she makes a painful sacrifice for them to be together. For three weeks, Nicholas Thornhill, Earl of Guildford has searched for his missing wife. Rumors of him being guilty of murder make him unwilling to believe his wife's latest in a multitude of lies. But Victoria's changed behavior surprises him, and the past fades as his wife enthralls him once more. But when danger threatens to separate them forever, he must forge a bond with her that crosses the boundaries of time.
