Innocent Angela Bainbridge knows her dreams of a fairy-tale wedding and finding passion in a man's embrace can never come true. So when she's swept into the arms of—and kidnapped by—notorious Lee Raven she's both righteously angry…and curiously captivated. There's something about this brazen outlaw that awakens Angela's desires. She knows any crimes he's committed are for the protection of his family, but Angela realizes that a lifetime together with Lee can never be…Lee Raven knows he's only two steps ahead of the law. But this innocent beauty has his head spinning and his heart longing for something more than a life on the run. She's made it clear that she's determined to discover all of his secrets—but how can he let her learn what's hidden in his past? And how can he let her give him her heart today, when he can't evenpromise her tomorrow?

that he might have had a life filled with women. The realization made him smile. “Not too many.”
“How many?”
He shrugged. “A hundred. Maybe two.”
A startling realization hit her. It was the first time he hadn’t been honest with her. “Did you know that your accent thickens when you lie?”
“Then my accent must forever be thick.”
“Not really. Sometimes it’s as though it’s not there at all. That’s part of the reason that I thought it was fake that first morning.”
“And the rest of the reason?”
She shook her head. “I can’t quite put my finger on it.”
And he hoped she never would because that one bit of information had the power to unleash all that he wanted to forget.
“I could have gotten you killed today,” she said quietly, leaning back and tilting her face slightly.
“But you did not. I am an extremely cautious man.”
“You saved me, and I don’t even know what you look like.”
She lifted her hand and he quickly wrapped his fingers around her wrist.
“Let me touch your face,” she pleaded gently.
“No.”

que ele poderia ter tido uma vida cheia de mulheres. A realização fê-lo sorrir. "Não demasiados."
"Quantos?"
Ele encolheu os ombros. "Uma centena. Talvez dois."
Uma realização assombrosa atingiu-a. Era a primeira vez que ele não tinha sido honesto com ela. "Sabias que o teu sotaque se adensa quando mentes?"
"Então o meu sotaque deve ser para sempre espesso."
"Nem por isso. Às vezes é como se não estivesse lá de todo. Isso é parte da razão pela qual eu pensei que era falso naquela primeira manhã."
"E o resto da razão?"
Ela abanou a cabeça. "Não consigo pôr o dedo na ferida."
E ele esperava que ela nunca o fizesse, porque um pouco de informação tinha o poder de libertar tudo o que ele queria esquecer.
"Podia ter-te matado hoje", disse ela calmamente, inclinando-se para trás e inclinando ligeiramente a cara.
"Mas tu não o fizeste. Eu sou um homem extremamente cauteloso."
"Salvaste-me, e eu nem sei como és."
Ela levantou a mão dela e ele rapidamente enrolou os dedos à volta do pulso dela.
"Deixa-me tocar-te na cara", ela suplicou gentilmente.
"Não."
