Lily Montgomery is perfectly happy taking care of everyone else. That is, until her friendship with Shadowguard warrior, Kane Dawson, begins to blossom into something more.
But Lily has a secret, one that will keep her from ever making her feelings known to Kane.
One of the Shadowguard's fiercest warriors, Kane has a soft spot for Lily. A long-standing member of the Shadowguard, he can't figure out when his feelings for Ambrose Montgomery's youngest daughter morphed from brotherly affection into desire and an unfamiliar longing that feels a lot like love.
Kane holds himself in check knowing that Lily deserves better. A man in a suit, dinner at six every night, rosy-cheeked children who won't have to worry that their father might be killed by one of the Legion's wraiths.
But when the pair is thrown together by a set of circumstances beyond their control, they are forced to confront their growing passion and decide if love is worth the risk of baring it all.
