Ceara and Garreth have been promised to one another their entire lives. It is a fate Ceara has gladly accepted…if only Garreth would accept it, as well. Instead, he spends his days avoiding her at all cost and his nights with any other lass than the one he must marry. Ceara has had enough. No longer will she be the unwanted bride. But the very day she decides to release Garreth from their agreement to marry is the same day he realizes he cares deeply for his promised bride. Garreth's stubbornness may have cost him the only woman he has ever loved. Has he gone too far, or can he still convince Ceara that they are meant to be?
