“Please, I apologize, do continue, Ms. Bunsbury.”
Straightening her spine, Emily gave him her best piercing gaze.
“Mr. Dalton, I am indebted to you. I do not know what came over me last night, but I have been told that my well-being is your responsibility. I am most grateful for your assistance.”
William smiled broadly, the motion pulling the mark beneath his eye. Emily’s breath caught. She curled her hands into tight balls at her side, aghast against the unexpected urge to touch that blemished flesh.“It was but my duty to rescue you from the cold heartless floor, Ms. Bunsbury,” William said, with a jovial grin.

Tempest of Passion
Emily Bunsbury is most definitely not a fainter. She prefers to leave that sort of shenanigans to young debutants and to those desperate to land a husband. She is neither.
Except last night she passed out and was rescued by none other than the town’s most eligible bachelor: William Dalton. Of course, she wants nothing to do with him, but her heart and body don’t seem to be in agreement…
Banished from his pack for a crime he did not commit, William Dalton does not have the desire or the time to court women, yet, when he meets Emily Bunsbury he is incapable of staying away. Certain that it is nothing more than a passing fancy and not the mating pull, he pursues her.
However, as the unknown threat that expelled him from his pack strikes again, William realizes that Emily means much more and he must keep her safe. Now, if only she’d agree to his terms…
As danger grows with each passing day, will the couple learn to trust each other or will their love be nothing more than a temporary tempest of passion?
