They vow to love, honor, cherish...
With her signature spirit, Faith Merridew has left everything she’s ever known for the man she thought was the love of her life. Instead he leaves her name—and dreams—in the dust. That is, until she crosses paths with Nicholas Blacklock, a Waterloo veteran, who offers to save her reputation with a marriage of convenience.
...and then get to know one other.
A hardened soldier, Nick hides a deadly secret—and tries to keep Faith at arm’s length. But even though Nick can command legions of men with a word, his orders go sweetly ignored by his convenient bride. And as they come to know one another more deeply, she brings out in him things he thought dead: gentleness, laughter…and love…

Jerusalem: Stone and Spirit offers a view of the city in a blend of history and visual images. The sanctified sites of the city, its personages, and its landscapes have captivated the imagination of artists over the centuries - and, as in every culture, the images that have resulted speak of the values and convictions of their creators. Art and artifacts collected from all over the world - some virtually unknown - show maps based on the Bible and historical events; lithographs, including a romanticized view of the Dome of the Rock; the earliest Biblical quotation found, inscribed on a silver plaque; illuminated manuscripts showing Mohammad's ascension into heaven (16th century) and the crusaders' seige of Jerusalem (13th century); coins stamped with an early image of the menorah or a portrait of the Emperor Hadrian; and mosaics, reliefs, letters, and paintings. These fascinating objects - the soul of jerusalem past and present - narrate the religious, social, political, and artistic history of the city.
