The Warrior’s Winter Bride by Denise Lynn
Isabella of Warehaven is the key to revenge that Richard of Dunstan craves. And now he has her securely in his arms, he won’t let her go. With Isabella as bait, he’ll lure her betrothed – the murderous Glenforde – back to the scene of his crime and deliver justice.
When the harsh winter traps Isabella on Richard’s island fortress, she has no choice but to become his bride. Unable to deny the stirrings of a dangerously seductive attraction, can Isabella ease this fierce warrior’s torment and wipe the darkness from his soul before spring – and rescue – arrives?
