SHE WOULD BURN: Valerian had long ago learned that she would never marry. While the townsfolk of her Yorkshire village were grateful for her gift, they were suspicious also. In 1722, the price was solitude. It had never bothered her until now. HE WOULD BURN: The new baron of Ravenhall had never wanted anything the way he desired his people's enigmatic healer. Though he had known scandal before, their first meeting fanned flames in Nathaniel Warrington that rose unnaturally fierce. Their first kiss flared hotter still. TOGETHER: Yet, another fire was building. There were those who sought to destroy Valerian, to persecute her for all she was.
