Against Every Warning, She's Drawn Ever Closer to the Man Known as "Black Heart"

All of England thinks Phillip Camden a monster--a man who deliberately caused the deaths of his squadron. But as nurse Arabelle Denler watches the so-dubbed "Black Heart" every day, she sees something far different: a hurting man desperate for mercy. And when their paths twist together and he declares himself her new protector, she realizes she has her own role to play in his healing.

Phillip Camden would have preferred to die that day with his squadron rather than be recruited to the Admiralty's codebreaking division. The threats he receives daily are no great surprise and, in his opinion, well deserved. What comes as a shock is the reborn desire to truly live that Arabelle inspires in him.

But when an old acquaintance shows up and seems set on using him in a plot that has the codebreakers of Room 40 in a frenzy, new affections are put to the test.

On Wings of Devotion, Excerpt 1
A stranger stalking down the street shouldn’t make her hands tremble in anticipation. Arabelle Denler forced her breathing to calm, forced an easy smile to her lips for the soldier whose bandage she’d just changed, and stood with the old bandage balled up in her bowl. “Is there anything else you need, Captain?”
The thrashing of his head from side to side may have been the answer to her question. Or it may have been simple agony. Poor chap. He’d just arrived in Charing Cross Hospital yesterday after ordnance had stolen his entire left leg.
“Ara!” The stage whisper came from the hallway, where Eliza, one of the volunteer nurses, motioned her frantically.
He’d be stomping down the street any moment. Brooding and aloof and mysterious and so handsome that just looking at him could make one’s heart crack a bit.
She resisted the urge to dart out. Black Heart, as the papers had dubbed him, was of no concern to her. She had a fiancĂ©. And more, she had a purpose. Right here, right now. Resting a hand on the captain’s shoulder, she closed her eyes and whispered a quiet prayer. Only after her amen did she move away, her pace no faster than it ever was. The fact that she didn’t stop at any other cots in the ward had nothing to do with the view out the window and everything to do with the fact that her shift was over and she needed to deliver these bloodied bandages to the laundry on her way out.
If the window facing Agar Street happened to be on the way to said laundry, that was pure coincidence.
And if she went into the little room where the nurses and volunteers took their brief breaks rather than directly to her destination, she could blame it on Eliza, who seized her by the arm and tugged her into the cupboard of a room with a giggle. “Hurry.”
Arabelle rolled her eyes, even as she knew it was more to cover the thumping of her own pulse than because she found their daily ritual silly. She slid the bowl of sullied bandages onto a table and quickly washed her hands before golden-haired Eliza pulled her over to the window.
“There!” Susan, a pretty girl of perhaps eighteen who had been volunteering here for only a half year, leaned into the windowsill until her cheek was pressed to the pane.
Arabelle tugged her back an inch. Gracious, but sometimes these girls made her feel ancient. She was only twenty-five, but she couldn’t recall ever acting so giddy simply because a man was walking down the street. “A bit of propriety, if you please, Sue. He could look up again, and you don’t want him to catch you staring.”

The girls had about fainted dead away last week when he’d glanced directly up at their window and sent them all a devil-may-care grin. As if he knew exactly what they were doing and the effect he had.
