    0 out of 5

    Would you risk everything to protect the one you love from relentless greed?

    After the death of her mother, Charity Bohdan vowed to carry on her work—providing free treatment to those who are sick or injured. What started off as patching up wounds soon took a very different direction when she was being called to treat young women who’d been brutally raped and left pregnant. She knows the risks involved with treating and re-homing these women, but she can’t turn them away.

    When Charity is called to treat a drunk’s wounded hand, she expects to find some elderly station hand. Instead she finds a handsome, young man, who isn’t drunk at all. As she tends to his injury, she can’t ignore the feelings he stirs inside her when their skin touches.

    Avarice Licciardi has spent his life working for his father—a greedy, loveless man who has destroyed everyone in his way. But when Avarice meets Charity, a woman with the touch of an angel, he discovers there’s something he craves much more than his father’s money. He wants this woman to be a part of his life.

    As they spend time together, talking of Irish legends and going on picnics, Avarice begins to win the beautiful woman’s heart. But then his father orders him to retrieve some hidden papers at Charity’s estate. He refuses…until his father threatens to go get the papers himself. Avarice is determined to protect Charity from this brutal man—even if that means deceiving her.

    What Avarice finds at her estate is a hidden tunnel with incriminating mysteries far greater than hidden papers. Together Avarice and Charity uncover secrets from the past that sicken their souls as an evil, greedy man threatens to tear them apart in his search for the evidence hidden at the Bohdan estate.
