Seeking Persephone

by Sarah M Eden

$16.99

Quick Overview

In Seeking Persephone, Persephone Lancaster's family is on the verge of financial ruin. When an unexpected marriage proposal forces her to choose between her own happiness and her family's welfare, Persephone finds herself relegated to life in a secluded castle as the wife of a bitter duke. Living in a fortress surrounded by foreboding forests and wild dogs while facing a distant, unfeeling husband inside its walls, Persephone is sure she will never be happy again.

But Adam, the Duke of Kielder, is not entirely what he seems. Physically and emotionally scarred from childhood, his icy demeanor masks a softer, more vulnerable character. Forced to face the constant courage and optimism of his enchanting young wife, the Duke can hardly keep his protective walls intact. When menacing forces put Persephone's life in jeopardy, will the Duke risk his heart in order to truly save her or will he remain safe within the stronghold he has created?
 

Details

When Persephone Lancaster receives a marriage proposal from the ill-tempered Duke of Kielder, she refuses, and then reconsiders. The obscene sum of money he's offering Persephone would save her family from ruin. With her characteristic optimism, she travels to the far reaches of Northumberland to wed a greatly feared stranger. Lodged deep in a thick forest infested with wild dogs, the Duke's castle is as cold and forbidding as the Duke himself, a man with terrible scars on his body and his soul. But the Duke's steely determination to protect his heart at all costs is challenged by his growing attachment to his lovely and gentle bride. With caring persistence, Persephone attempts to pierce the Duke's armor and reach the man beneath. Yet he cannot tolerate such exposure, and his repeated rejections take their toll. But when grave danger arises, the Duke realizes he must face the risk of revealing his true feelings or lose the woman he cannot live without. Size 0.7 x 5.8 x 8.8 inches, 288 pages
