A dying man's last wish: Protect Lea. Make her your bride. 

Marrying the lovely, sensual Lea will be no hardship for Alain, recently named Earl of St. Vincent after his older brother’s suspicious death. Keeping her safe may be another matter, for a curse lies upon the St. Vincent lands.

A seer tells Alain he must marry on Christmas and take part with his bride in the fertility rites of the Winter Solstice. If he does not, Lea’s life and Alain’s lands may be forfeit.

Alain's dark passions seduce Lea's heart and body, but it will take more than passion to bring St. Vincent back to its former glory, beneath a Cornish moon.
