In an age of chivalry tainted by bloodshed and betrayal, two unlikely lovers are swept up by a passion strong as steel, sensual as velvet; and eternal as the stars...
JOCELYN MONTAGNE - Reckless, exotic daughter of a Celtic noblewoman and a Norman knight, left to guard her father's fortress, she fought brutish takeovers with a dagger. But nothing could defend her from the brooding magnificence of the invader who quickened her wild Welsh blood and stole her tender soul.
ROBERT DE LANGLEY - Full of arrogance and outlaw vigor, the fabled Lion of Normandy would hold his old enemy's daughter hostage for his plundered lands -- until he decreed that he must keep them both.
Torn between vengeance and lingering desire, war made them enemies, and passion possessed them.
