Cole's heart is dark.
He's a mystery, even to those closest to him in the Assassins Guild. All anyone really knows for sure is that he's ruthless, grim, and cares little for his own life. So when he loses his memory during an attack and thinks himself a naive eighteen year-old youth again, no one can really believe the transformation. But as his memory returns, so do the nightmares and the dark reality of who he has become.
Lucy's world is bright.
When gentle-natured Lucy falls in love with the damaged stranger, she thinks him a smiling, amiable gentleman. But rumors of a murder in the nearby village have her suspecting that her patient may be hiding a terrible secret.
Can opposites really attract?
What will happen when Cole regains his memory and his past catches up to him?
Assassins Guild, Tome 2 : The Rebel
Hampshire, July 1599
Lucy Cowdrey knew the man walking across the meadow barely ten feet from her was not a local. She'd made it her business to meet everyone in the village of Sutton Grange and surrounds in the two months since her arrival, and none looked like this man. He was broader across the chest and shoulders than most and very tall. Lucy couldn't see much of his face, covered as it was by his wide-brimmed hat, but the little she did see was enough. No one in the little corner of Hampshire she now called home was as dark of complexion. His skin wasn't Moorish, but it was certainly a deeper tone than sun alone could achieve. He was a stranger.
And he was trespassing on her brother's land.
She knew she ought to confront him, but she was no fool. If he were there to steal cattle, she would not be able to stop such a large man. Perchance he was only passing through anyway.
Lucy gave him a wide berth, but kept him in her sights. He did not look up and went on his way without a nod or greeting in her direction. Not only was it odd, but it was impolite too. If she were a man with nothing to hide, she would have at least tipped her hat.
