Debut author, Alexandra Benedict brings us a fantastic story of a forbidden love between the aristocracy and a commoner. Be prepared to fall in love!



Someone is trying to kill Sabrina Kallos and she has no idea why. She is a simple gypsey and has never done anyone any harm. Now she is being stalked and shot at by thieves or murder's, she knows not which, but she must run and lead them away from her gypsey camp, or endanger the lives of everyone she loves and holds dear.


Anthony Kennington, third Viscount Hastings needed to escaped the female's of household before he goes crazy. Sneaking away without his mother and sisters being aware, he hides himself off to the woods for some well deserved peace and quiet. At least that's what he tried to find, instead he finds a water nymph. Not just any nymph, but the most beautiful girl he has ever set eyes upon...and he's seen his fair share of naked women in his time!


When she discovers that someone is watching, she runs like the wind, but when he follows her, he finds her being persued by thugs bent on mischief or murder, he's not sure which. When the two thugs come at her with rapiers drawn and dive after her, Anthony steps in and grabs one by the collar and takes swift care of him. Grabbing the first mans sword, he turns to take care of the second man. When he is taken care of, he turns to the woman who is unconsious on the ground. Touching her forehead, he finds blood where her head hit a rock. Well, what is a gentleman to do now? Why, take her home of course. But with a house full of females, he has to do is secretly or risk sensure for taking a gypsey to his home. So he decided the best place to hide her is in his room...in his bed!


This is a fun, fast paced story. There's danger, intrigue and hot romance! You just won't be able to get enough of Anthony and Sabrina. Even though they come from entirely different 'worlds', they find a love so pure and sweet, it makes you want to cry. Anthony's siters are a hoot and make the story even more fun.


This is a definate keeper for any romance fan! Happy reading!!!
