Growing up on the streets of Boston, stealing was Kate McBride’s only means of survival. Until the kindness of a stranger changed her heart and helped her to seek a peaceful life. Traveling to London to start anew, her plans are thwarted when a threat has her life hanging in the balance. The accusation of murder, and a former friend turned enemy will make Kate pay dearly. Her only option is to seek the help of a Bow Street Runner, a man who sees her as nothing but a conniving thief. Until, one late evening, they share a sensual kiss that shatters her guarded heart and awakens a long-lost dream…
A man she’s afraid to trust.
Kane Roberts, a Bow Street Runner, has no time to play bodyguard, however he can’t refuse the request from a longtime friend to whom he owes his life—but he doesn’t have to pretend to enjoy his task, or Kate. However, his opinion of her shifts when he learns that she is a patron of an orphanage and witnesses a side of her that is hard to ignore. The more he intimately gets to know Kate, his desires for her ignite. As the threat against her becomes more menacing, it compels Roberts to take matters into his own hands and risk his guarded heart to the possibility of love or risk losing Kate forever.
