Her marvelous talent for enchanting stories laced with
sensuality is always a delight, and never more so than in
this thirteenth-century tale of a brave knight who returns
to the Welsh border to claim -- and tame -- his
bride, or so he thinks....
After too many
years on the battlefield, Merrick de Beaucourt is looking
forward to a simple life of peace and quiet with a docile
wife at his side. But when he finally fetches his
bride-to-be from a secluded English convent, he finds he
needs more than his knight's spurs to bring order to his
When she was betrothed at fifteen to the
legendary English knight she had never met, Lady Clio of
Camrose believed that love was something magical. But her
youthful hopes faded as she languished in a convent for six
long years, never hearing a word from Merrick.
Weary of war, Lord Merrick finds little peace guarding the
wild Welsh borders, and even less with the wife whose trust
he destroyed. But as Lady Clio comes to understand the dark
knight she so blindly wed, she sees a chance to make her
dreams come true. Amid the enchanted mists that envelop
Camrose Castle, they will battle together to discover a
place where all things are possible, even a love that is
rare and wonderful.
