When a crippled young lord rescues a girl falling from a tree, it reveals a secret about himself and his mother's side of the family that could put him at the center of a war with beings he thought only existed in fairy tales.Tristan Gareth Smyth lived his entire life stuck at home at Waverly Park, left behind while his Grandfather makes trips to London, all because of his blasted wheelchair. Then an American heiress falls in his lap, literally, and he must find a way to keep her at a distance to protect not only his secret, but everyone around him from an assassin sent to kill him.
"Is he always so grumpy?"
Tabitha answered, “Only on the days ending in ‘Y’.”
“Lord Gerald has hired more staff for the visit. Besides, they’re American. They have no clue if what we do at dinner is proper or not.”
He pulled out the claymore and swung it about to let the tension out. Then he took it in both hands to examine it. “Where did you come from? And what kind of trouble did you bring with you that day?”
Before he could speak, she did. “So are you going to return the favor and show me who you really are? Tell me if my deduction is correct? Can we start this marriage as our true selves?”
