After Tanya's father dies, Tanya must find a way to obtain money for her and her mother. Unfortunately, everyone in her town is hungry, and there is not enough charity to feed her family. Tanya is forced to enter a relationship with Sir William, a cruel but wealthy man. Years later, her mother becomes betrothed to another, and Tanya realizes that this is the chance she has been waiting for. The chance to be free. Unfortunately, she does not expect Sir William's vow, a vow that if she will not be his, he will kill her. Tanya flees the town and travels to a distant village, where she finds a note in a bar asking for a new servant at a wealthy estate. Overjoyed, she heads to the estate, but halfway there she is bitten by a rabid wolf. Her leg is covered in blood and she is overcome with pain when a strange, attractive man comes to her rescue. It is the owner of the estate, Leon. As Leon houses Tanya at his estate and the young woman’s bond with him becomes more than friendship, Tanya comes to realize that he is more than a man. He is someone far more dangerous.
Leon lay in his bed, fighting the urges which erupted in his being. He could picture Tanya in bed next to him in naught but a sheer white nightgown, her flowing hair draped around her like a veil. This was exactly why it was a bad idea to have a woman in his estate with him. Yes, he oftentimes felt the hand of devilish arousal at night, but it was only an empty dream. As he gripped the bed, he continued to imagine Tanya next to him. The fantasy became so intense he could swear he could smell her in the room with him. There was something erotic about the goddess, Tanya.
