Lonely and desperate, Marcus Neill visits a brothel, searching for a taste of what he’s denied himself for years. Once there, his shame and scruples prevent him from taking a prostitute, so he turns to drink instead. Too drunk to defend himself, he is beaten, robbed, and left for dead on the street.
A flat overlooking a notorious brothel is not ideal lodgings for a war widow, yet there is nowhere do-gooder Helen Helmsley would rather be. When she finds a wounded stranger outside her door, she knows it’s her duty to save him…but nursing the handsome man in her bed might prove more than she bargained for.
