The lady and the commoner...
Lady Christiana Fitzwaryn was not opposed to marriage.
But she demanded to be married on her own terms, not as
punishment for a romantic indiscretion, and especially not
to a common merchant. Yet she was in for a shock when she
met David de Abyndon. For she was confronted by no
ordinary merchant but a man of extraordinary poise and
virility. He was unaffected by their difference in social
status. And even less affected by her well-thought-out
arguments against their upcoming betrothal. Instead, it
was Christiana who felt uneasy in the presence of this
naturally lordly man behind whose cool blue eyes she
sensed the most uncompromising of passions.
David de Abyndon understood Christiana's dilemma, for he
too harbored a secret pain. How could he tell her that
there was more to this arrangement than met the eye? How
could he tell her about his deal with the king--a deal
that meant he had all but bought Christiana sight unseen?
What's more, now that he had seen this beautiful, spirited
woman, how could he convince her that the love she sought
was not in the callow knight she had romanticized but in
the flesh-and-blood arms of the man who may have bought
her body--but in the bargain lost both his heart and soul?
A Common Lady
For years she had thought he was dead. Yet when Addis de
Valence strode into Moira Falkner's cottage, there was no
mistaking the sharp planes of his face, and the scar she
herself had helped to heal. The young squire who had once
been her hero was now her lord, a hardened man who
returned to claim the son she had raised as her own. But
Moira couldn't deny that Addis roused a passion she never
thought to feel--and a perilous hope for a future that
could never be....
An Uncommon Love
Addis returned from the Crusades to find his lands usurped
by his stepbrother, and his country on the brink of
rebellion. Determined to reclaim his birthright, Addis
could not afford to be distracted by a woman--even one as
tempting as Moira. Yet the only living part of his
contented past lay in Moira--and his desire for her was
more dangerous than his deadly battles with the king's
men. By law, Moira belonged to him...but possessing her
heart might be far more difficult.
