Love's Fierce Embrace by Julia Rush revolves around the romance of Stephen Alexander Warfield, whom London society calls ‘an immutable bachelor,’ and Melina Pouliot, a young beauty who is dumped at his place when his injured horse leaves him stranded on the isle of Dunnburgh Castle. He is drawn to Melina’s angelic beauty and her unconscious movements have a strange effect on him, making him wonder to whom she belongs. Melina is equally attracted to Stephen’s charm, but finds him annoying because he turns protective and does not allow her to leave his side. Stephen takes the stubborn Melina into his world, tries to find out what events left her there, and tries to protect her, despite her unwillingness to cooperate with him. Will Stephen be able to work his way into Melina’s heart? Will Melina be able to wipe away Stephen’s years of loneliness?
