from The Wild Rose Press Gideon's Angel

Alone since the death of her father, Jillian Montgomery thought life couldn't get any more difficult. Then she found herself fleeing from a ruthless Barnary Coast madam-straight into the path of a demented killer. Only by a twist of fate did Jillian survive. But now, on a fog-drenched island, she had become a prisoner of the very man she suspected of trying to kill her—a powerful, compelling lighthouse keeper who filled her with fear...and the unexpected heat of reckless desire.

Tormented by loss and the dark memories of a tragic shipwreck, Gideon Bolt swore he'd never let himself care for anyone again. Then someone began murdering prostitutes, and a half-drowned girl washed up on the rocky shores of his island home. Convinced Jillian was a harlot, Gideon vowed to keep his distance, until danger threatened to take her away, and he learned what his heart already knew...that this enticing beauty had the power to open the locked doors of his soul.
