Her: Alone since the death of her father, Jillian Montgomery though life couldn't get any more difficult. Then she found herself fleeing from a ruthless Barnary Coast madam-straight into the path of a demented killer. Only by a twist of fate did Jillian survive. But now, on a fog-drenched island, she had become a prisoner of the very man she suspected of trying to killer her – a powerful, compelling lighthouse keeper who filled her with fear . . . and the unexpected heat of reckless desire.
Him: Tormented by loss and the dark memories of a tragic shipwreck, Gideon Bolt swore he'd never let himself care for anyone again. Then someone began murdering the prostitutes of San Francisco and a half-drowned girl washed up on the rocky shores of his island home. Convinced Jillian was a harlot, Gideon vowed to keep his distance, until danger threatened to take her away, and he learned what his heart already knew . . . that this enticing beauty had the power to open the locked doors of his soul.
