Genre: Historical, Romance
Goodreads

This masked lord... Lord Jasper, younger son of a duke, suffered horrible burns fighting in the Napoleonic Wars. He wears a mask to hide his face from the stares and screams and finds comfort in the shadows. Jasper is an exceptional bounty hunter, so when a woman summons him to her deathbed and asks him to find her runaway daughter before she passes away, he doesn't refuse. Jasper is close to his quarry when he's knifed by an assailant. Imagine his surprise when he regains consciousness in the arms of the woman he seeks. Except she's not at all what he expected.

Is not the only one with scars. On a remote cliff on the sea, Olivia Carlisle calls her five-year-old son in from an approaching storm. But the little boy is more interested in the man he's found on the trail to their hidden cottage. Olivia fears men and wants nothing more than to leave the injured man where she found him. But his knife wound is severe, and with the approaching storm, she knows leaving him will condemn him to death. As Jasper begins to heal, Olivia acknowledges her attraction to him, even though such emotions terrify her almost as much as returning to London. Jasper must convince her that her only chance at safety is to challenge the man who pursues her. They must travel into the lion's den—he to face his vulnerability and she to face her worst fears.

Jasper Grantham was one of a group of soldiers that we would call special-ops. He survived the war with France and feels guilty for living when others died. His face is badly scarred, and he hides it by wearing a scarf so not to frighten others. He earns his money as a bounty hunter, finding missing people. His current job is to find Miss Carlisle. The Duke of Withernsea wants her found, but Jasper refuses to work for him for reasons you’ll discover. Her father, Viscount Carlisle, has hired him as his wife is very ill and wishes to see her daughter, Olivia, before she dies. Jasper finds her location but is attacked and stabbed on his way to her remote cottage.
 
Olivia is fearful when her son, Richard (5), comes running in with a boot and tells her he found a man. Jasper was unconscious when they arrived. Olivia doesn’t want him in her cabin but can’t leave him to die. With help from their horse, they managed to drag him to their cabin. As he wakens, he realizes he’s burning with fever, can barely speak but he knows her. He knows if he lives, he’ll protect her and her son. Richard wants Jasper to be his father but settles for being friends. She realizes Richard needs more than being hidden away and she misses her parents. They plan to return to London.
 
Returning to London, Olivia discovers her father’s betrayal and other things. Jasper gets the information he needs to help her, and Richard. Of course, it’s a lot more complicated than what I’ve written but I won’t ruin this wonderful story. This is my favorite book of the series, so far. The characters are wonderful, but Richard might steal some scenes. I highly recommend it.
