The very last thing Tarrel wanted was to marry and especially to a woman he had never met. However, he would not be the one to break the contract. Hopefully the woman would be eager to put an end to the agreement their father’s had made. Arriving a few days early before the wedding would take place he is infuriated to find the lass had fled. He decided to search for her and only then he would consider if he would continue with the marriage arrangements. When he stumbled on a naked goddess playing in the pool of water he knew that he would never give up this glorious angel. Only when she drugs him on their wedding night does he wish now he had never married her. Though he swore he would punish her he couldn’t go through with it, but he knew that he could never trust her again. It aggravated the hell out of him when she turns his orderly life in to a living hell, yet he couldn’t complain because his nights were heavenly bliss. Something was missing though, he wanted more from her and he would have it however, he would never let the woman into his heart. He would not let a woman have such power over him.
It was hard to admit defeat, when she was captured, Dalla had hoped she would be able to avoid being forced to wed the rutting beast. She was sickened and furious when she finds out that her betrothed had taken her cousin to bed just days before they were to marry. Her only option to avoid her wedding night was to drug her husband even though she knows she would suffer severely for such a wicked and despicable act. When nothing happens she puts that matter aside and the first time he make love to her, she fights desperately against the passion blazing between them. In the end though she knew it was pointless to deny it beside she couldn’t. It came as a tremendous shock to find out she had fallen in love with her husband and swears an oath that she would make him love her back. As the weeks pass and things outside the bedroom improve hope for a happy future grew but it wasn’t long before she was rudely bought back to reality and all those shared intimate moments with her husband meant nothing to him. She knew then it would be a waste of time to try and make her husband love her. What would be the point if he never trusted her?
Can Tarrel ever pardon his wife for drugging him and open up his heart to her? Could Dalla forgive her husband’s betray and let herself love him again? Would these two lovers ever come together with their hearts open to trust and love each other, or were they both doomed to live in misery?
