Aldwin Treynarde, a squire who shot Lord Geoffrey de
Lanceau with a crossbow bolt after being deceived by Baron
Sedgewick, is ordered to retrieve a stolen ruby pendant
before it falls into the Baron and Veroniqueâ€™s hands.
Haunted by his guilt over being manipulated by the baron
years ago, Aldwin wants to prove his worth to his lord. If
he excels in his duty, he might even be awarded knighthood.
Such an honor would also help redeem himself to his
respected parents who, ashamed by his reckless near-murder
of de Lanceau, told him never to return home.
Lady Leona Ransley, in an effort to help her depressed
father, only wants to hand over the pendant, collect the
reward, and vanish. When she arranges a meeting in a seedy
tavern, she never expected to face Aldwin, who almost
caused her death twelve years ago when they disturbed a
beeâ€™s nest during a childhood game. Although Aldwin does
not recognize her, he is reminded of Leona and is haunted
by his belief that she died from the bee stings from that
day twelve years prior. Believing that the woman before
him is a courtesan and has information on the conspiratorsâ€™
whereabouts, he takes Leona hostage and spirits her away,
meaning to deliver her and the pendant to de Lanceau.
She, however, fights him at every chance. He desires his
warrior captive more than any noble woman he has ever met,
and when he discovers who she really is, he knows he has
one last chance to protect his ladyâ€™s life. Only by
resolving what happened between them and by fighting side
by side can Aldwin and Leona defeat the conspirators and
surrender to their greatest temptationâ€”love.
