Lord John has lived through the worst horrors of war…but nothing could have been as terrifying to his tormented heart as Lady Arabella. She is intoxicating, infuriating…and she makes him want to live again. Suddenly he’s writing bad poetry and climbing trees in the pitch-dark night…just so he can dance with her as the clock strikes midnight. And even though he knows he can never be the sort of man she deserves, he can’t help wanting her. But when the harsh light of day replaces the magic of midnight, can this tormented soul learn to love again?
