Bound by tragedy and obligation, haunted by guilt and ghosts of the past, a young rakehell, Julian Maine, Duke of Raulston-and a girl, more child than woman, Lady Bryana Ostburg, have gone through the years tormented by inner demons. Every winter fuels Bryana's resentment toward Julian-for robbing her of all she loved, and every bitter snowfall haunts Julian with the guilt he carries behind his public facade. That he is her guardian, and she is dependent upon him, both feeds her bitterness and affords her the ways to wound him. Julian no longer seeks healing for himself, but somehow desires it for Bryana. Somewhere in the past, what fate used to bind them, what despair and pain divided them, also merged their souls so deep they could never be severed. Julian and Bryana have one winter, one moment to make time stand still. At that moment, the balm for healing lies within reach, and within themselves, but its deeper roots bring a revelation that neither expected.
