Like all the Bedwyn men, Aidan has a reputation for cool arrogance. But this proud nobleman also possesses a loyal, passionate heart - and it is this fierce loyalty that has brought Colonel Lord Aidan to Ringwood Manor to honor a dying soldier's request. Having promised to comfort and protect the man's sister, Aidan never expected to find a headstrong, fiercely independent woman who wants no part of his protection, nor did he expect the feelings this beguiling creature would ignite in his guarded heart.

I do not go into reading romance novels expecting amazingly unique plots. Nor do I expect a great work of literature. I want to simply get away from the world and take a brain break and indulge in silly romance stories. This one annoyed me, however, due to it dragging on and on about how the protagonists will never have another day together, they'll never live together. And none of it makes sense. They are both strong characters, intelligent, and independent. So why can't they just come forward and say what they feel? A lot of repetitious phrases and many pages of will they or won't they without the salacious love scenes to make it all fun.
