Medieval Lords and Ladies Collection 3 "Loyal Hearts" by Sarah Westleigh Book 3 - d'Evreux Family series Years before, Sir Giles D'Evreux had been betrothed to a skinny girl named Pippa. With his country in turmoil, Sir Giles returned to find that this young maid had grown into a stunning beauty! He could do naught but demand her hand in marriage. Though hardened by time, Lady Philippa d'Alban could still feel Sir Giles's whisper of promise in her heart. Upon his return, Pippa sought refuge in a convent, but realized soon enough that she was unfit to be a nun, especially when she could find no refuge from Sir Giles's mesmerizing stare, or his promise of love.
