But as the months go by each of them finds the courage to face danger. And danger is on every side …
Exctiting, moving and brilliantly evocative, this heart-racing novel will keep you hooked from beginning to end.
As if there was no one else in the room, Richard moved up the table until he stood beside her and held out both his hands.
‘Rose, I’m so sorry it’s been such a long time. I know what you must have been thinking. I asked my mother to get in touch with you, but it seems she didn’t and since I wrote that letter I’ve been on the run and there was no chance to write. But I’m here now. Eighteen months ago, when I asked you to marry me, you said it was too soon and that you thought my feelings for you wouldn’t last. And I asked you, if i came back in a year’s time and repeated my offer, would you reconsider – and you said you would. Well, it’s been longer than that and my feelings for you haven;t changed. So now I’m asking you to keep your promise. Darling Rose, I’ve never stopped loving you. Will you marry me?
