Guest Post & Giveaway with Author Lorraine Heath

4.     4As the three brothers ride into the night, into the darkness, into the unknown, Sebastian vows that he will one day return to Pembrook to claim all that belongs to him. Nothing matters more than that. It is a vow that will shape the man he is to become.

5.      5. Twelve years later, three dark and dangerous men arrive in London, determined to reclaim their birthright.
