Dying on the battlefield, Robert pleads with his friend, Dyson, to marry the woman he loves, and to give her and his son the protection of marriage. Dyson, a confirmed bachelor, agrees to a proxy marriage on the proviso that his bride never tries to contact him.
When Miranda and her child are left homeless and with nowhere else to go, she turns to Dyson.
Will he give her and her child sanctuary, and if so, can they hope to find happiness together after she broke the bargain they had agreed upon? And will a little boy, who is the spitting image of his father, resurrect too many painful memories? $0.99 on Kindle.
