~ Gannon gaped, shock rounded his eyes. He’d been staring like a moron since he found the couple. Gabriel’s blond hair was mussed from the chase. His ruthless gaze softened as he stared down at the woman. Tiny flecks of ice threaded her burgundy hair like a halo, caught on her lashes and brushed her full lips. She was an ethereal beauty in his arms. The scent of blood spiced the winter air and crimson speckled the snow at Gabriel’s feet. It had been a scene straight from a dark fairy tale.~

Lord Julian Thornton, Earl of Mansfield by day and secret agent of the crown by night, has sworn never to love another woman. But then a mission goes wrong, and Julian is left for dead, his only hope a seductively mysterious gypsy woman named Lara. And when she marries him under gypsy law for his own protection, Julian is too entranced with the dark beauty to deny himself the benefits of their marriage. Yet even as he longs for their idyllic interlude to last, Julian knows his presence alone puts her very life in danger. Until he discovers Lara in the one place he never expected to see his wild gypsy enchantress...the one place where he isn't sure he can protect her—or his own heart.
From the moment Lady Lara, half-gypsy daughter of the Earl of Stanhope, finds a wounded stranger washed up on Scotland's rugged shore, she knows their destinies will be forever entangled. So when a band of smugglers comes looking for the dashing stranger, Lara doesn't hesitate to claim him as her husband "Drago." But when her mysterious husband goes back to his own world—and its dark secrets—Lara returns to her father to take her place as his heiress...never expecting to find her Drago across the earl's crowded ballroom. And although he still enthralls her, Lara is determined that she will never truly be his wife until he surrenders his heart as well. (Goodreads)


Review:
Connie Mason is one of my go to historical romance authors. She does a great job pairing romance with adventure.
Julian is a man haunted by the death of his late fiance and unborn child. As a secret agent, he lives a double life and uses all of his resources to find the Jackal - the man responsible for his loss. Julian is close to discovering the man's identity when he is captured. He barely escaped with his life. Found on a beach by a beautiful gypsy woman who nurses him back to health. His desire for her is uncontrollable, but he knows she and her tribe would be better off without him around.
Lara is drawn to the stranger and he sparks a need within that is undeniable. But she is also living a double life. She is the recognized bastard daughter of an English Lord and will be joining her father soon. She knows she and the man she rescued cannot be together.
They go their separate ways only to bump into each other a London party. Imagine their surprise. She thought he was a smuggler and he thought she was just a gypsy. Out of honor, Julian offers to marry here and she refuses - though they are already married gypsy style - and they must work together to bring the Jackal to justice and find their future.
This was a good book. Lara's background and circumstance were different than the usual regency romance, but a titled a bit to the unbelievable side. And there were times when Julian deserved a good slap for being an ass - he wasn't the romantic hero he could have been, which is why I didn't give this book 4 stars. Still, it was a fun read.
