The greatest heroes are soft-spoken.
Gregor Ramsay has never seen himself as a hero, but when the lass he fancies falls into the clutches of the Channel of Dubh, he’ll do anything he can to save her. Linet Baird will not be sold across the sea on his watch. Together with his cousin Connor, he follows Linet’s trail to Edinburgh, where it’s rumored they’ll find one of the Channel of Dubh’s final headquarters. There’s only one problem: Linet claims she doesn’t wish to be saved.
Although Linet didn’t ask to be kidnapped from Ramsay land, she’s grateful it happened. The dark secret she left behind was destroying her. Even so, it quickly becomes apparent that her protector Sela has limited power to help her. Just like her, Sela is in the grips of a larger organization, one controlled by cruel, capricious men who lack any form of conscience. When Gregor Ramsay offers to save her, she’s tempted to trust the lad she once fancied, but to do so, she will need to face the trauma of her past.
