Injured while on the Isle of Crete, Miss Caroline Huntington is taken to the island’s darkly enigmatic British doctor, Alex Trentham. At first put off by his gruff manner, she soon realizes there is far more to this handsome, wounded man than meets the eye.
Dr. Alex Trentham fled England, vowing not to return, but he never bargained for the beautiful and vivacious Caroline to enter his life. As she recovers, the carefully constructed walls around his heart start to crumble under the force of emotions he cannot allow himself to feel.
When danger threatens, Caroline must return to England, leaving Alex behind. But the distance cannot withstand the force of their longing, and Alex is drawn back to the woman he loves—and the tragedy in his past that could cost him everything.

Thrown together on a botanical expedition, James and Lily's attraction is immediate, and impossible. Despite every reason to keep their distance, the two find themselves inexorably drawn together as they race to reach a hidden valley before their enemies can bring all their dreams crashing down.
