Scholars are being murdered, and the only thing that the victims have in common is their search for a shroud brought to Scotland by Templars fleeing persecution in the fourteenth century. Francis Nightshade and Lucien Saintmaur, Lord Wyldhurst, are Department and Avalon Society members assigned to the investigation. Their mission is to travel to Scotland, hunt down the villains responsible for the murders, find the shroud, and keep it safe.
Due to the dark sins of his past, Nightshade never planned to marry. Meeting Miss Violet Frost changes everything. Shunned by society, the two loners and misfits strike up a friendship. Will Nightshade’s feelings about Violet change his mind about marriage or will he leave her behind to marry another?
Luc is perfectly happy living the life of an unrepentant rake – until he meets odd and prickly Hazel Graham in Scotland. Something about shy and fearful Hazel tugs at his heartstrings. Because of her past, Hazel is certain she can never marry. Can Luc help Hazel overcome her fears and take a chance on love?
