HONOR DEMANDED THAT THEY BE ENEMIES.
FATE DECREED THEY WOULD NEVER PART.
When the fierce knight, Simon de Bocage, is sent to London to deliver a Saxon beauty as a gift and symbol of loyalty to Prince Henry, he becomes embroiled in a plot thicker than the overthrowing of the Crown. Ingrith, the silver-haired serf girl whose virtue he has pledged to protect, tempts him beyond reason -- and beyond the bounds of his own honor.
Ingrith, the granddaughter of a once-powerful Saxon noble, sets out to seduce the darkly handsome knight who holds her captive, and thus elude her enslavement by the lecherous prince. But when she feels the heat of Simon's desire, she becomes a slave nonetheless -- to the fiery passion within her, and to the man who sets it aflame . . .
