In this “delicious medieval love story,” a noblewoman is forced to honor a long-ago betrothal to a ruthless warrior—who is now her family’s bitter enemy (Romantic Times).
Lady Lilliane was betrothed to Corbett of Colchester at the age of fourteen, long before their families became sworn enemies. Years later, Corbett unexpectedly turns up to claim his beautiful bride and, by contract, her valuable dowry: Castle Orrick. Suspecting some royal intrigue lies behind Corbett’s sudden desire for this marriage, Lilliane vows she will never lie in his bed. But what fate awaits Lilliane—and all England—if she resists him? And what darker fate if she surrenders?
This “sensual romance set in 13th-century England” marked the award-winning debut of this USA Today–bestselling author (Publishers Weekly).
