They were both outcasts by a harsh decree – and on the brink of a shared destiny of passion!
With her father murdered and her home burned, lovely Alyx Blackelt fled to the woods – and sanctuary in the camp of Raine Montgomery, a nobleman outlawed by the king’s edict. There she hid her beauty in the guise of a boy and her sorrow in her work as Montgomery’s squire.
But how long could such loveliness as hers be hidden? How long could such a gallant man’s desires be blind? Even as a blood feud raged between the Montgomerys and the Chatworths, as angry swords clattered in the name of family honor, one woman’s love would make all the difference…. One woman’s love would inflame a hero’s passion, touch a king’s pity, and raise a song of praise in every English heart.
