When Georgina Jenkins pulls a half-dead man out of the Thames, little does she realize that her life will never be the same.
As the only woman at Bow Street, Georgie lives by two rules -- to never be swayed by emotion, and to seek justice -- but only when it’s warranted. For she despises the fact that the punishment fits the station in life, and not the crime, a reality she knows all too well. She must now fight to keep from being distracted by the handsome stranger who appears in her life.
He may not remember anything about himself but for the name engraved on the medallion upon his chest, but Leo does know one thing -- he is in trouble. When he opens his eyes to his saviour, however, he is instantly captivated, and begs her to keep his presence secret. She reluctantly agrees, and Leo finds himself growing ever more attracted to the woman who is keeping him safe.
Georgie and Leo cannot deny their feelings for each other, but know nothing can come of them until the honorable Leo determines whether he is promised to another. But once he regains access to his memories, he realizes that he might have been better off without them. For all they seem to do is to put him and those he loves in continued danger -- a danger that even Georgie might not be able to fight. Especially not when she learns the truth.
Is love between two people who have no right to be together enough to overcome honor, pride, and, most importantly, the past?
