Logan Ambrose has endured a tortured existence. After learning how to fend for himself at a young age, he eventually amassed power and wealth. His fortune came at an extreme cost, as rising from poverty often does. Branded, he wears his sins on his marred flesh. Each scar represents a past he doesn't wish to remember, the ruthless man he holds at bay, the tortured soul who would do anything to survive.
Bruised, battered, and bloodied, Arabella Sutton is a woman lost. With no recollection of who she is or what terrors she suffered, she stumbles onto the imposing Winterthorne estate while running from those who hunt her, haunted by the memory of her bloodied hands holding a blade and wearing a bracelet monogrammed with the initial S.
When she stumbles into Logan's arms, he recognizes her instantly. She is one of two women he once knew: Arabella or her twin sister, Sybil. One he dared to love years ago, though he now despises them equally. Logan recognizes her bracelet as belonging to Sybil...the last woman he wished to see.
While Arabella must overcome the loss of her memories, she is drawn to the brooding and menacing master of Winterthorne, who knows much more about her past than he is willing to admit. Logan is assailed with memories of his lost love as he offers protection to the woman he believes to be her vicious twin, the woman who once reveled in making his life miserable, all the while fighting against the strong attraction that pulls him toward his charge and the reminders of Arabella that she rekindles in his hardened heart.
As Arabella pieces together her past, scandalous secrets come to light, and Logan will stop at nothing to save his beloved from the dangerous machinations of her evil identical twin. Together Logan and Arabella rekindle a romance they long thought extinguished. Meanwhile they concoct a grand scheme to unmask Sybil and rescue Arabella from her sister's misdeeds.
Can they protect Arabella from peril and assure their future before it is too late?
