is home at her beloved estate on the Scottish border when
King Richard's soldiers march into her castle and demand to
take her to the Continent with them. King Richard has been
captured while on Crusade, and Alix is among the nobles
whose lives will be collateral for the king's ransom. But
when she's delivered to Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine,
Richard's mother, she is dumbfounded to learn that the

and irrepressible young woman, Alix faces more
tribulations—and romance—on this trip to Europe, where
affairs of the state and affairs of the heart are
