Alexandra's mouth dropped open as Ross turned her toward him and kept his arm about her waist.  As they pressed together from chest to knees, she placed her gloved hands on his chest.  Tingles of excitement whirled through her system like a tiny tornado.  As she took a deep breath, she inhaled his masculine scent. 
She found herself trapped in his dark gaze. "Ross, this isn't proper."  

Dark, Deadly Love 

A woman with secrets. A haunted man. A slayer without remorse…

Alexandra Watson is too tall, too opinionated, too American. Too everything for London society—and for Sir Ross Havenwood. Once she dreamed of being his wife, but when she steps off the ship, orphaned and penniless, it’s with the knowledge Ross only feels an obligation to protect her as his ward.

Her empathic abilities tell her that the one man she once trusted is haunted by a dangerous edge. That edge intrigues her…and fuels dreams of murder too brutal to share.

Ross’s life has been a series of missteps. A military career that destroyed his wife. A superficial society he disdains but must endure—along with premonitions he must keep to himself. Alexandra is a sweet, bright bloom in his shadowed life and desire for her burns his soul. Yet if he reveals dreams in which he is a killer, even she will think him mad.

Then the stubborn Alexandra insists on sheltering a young servant who harbors a deadly secret. A secret that will bring them both face-to-face with a relentless menace whose razor-sharp blade is aimed at their hearts…
