Betrothed to the heir of Saitun manor, lovely Gytha was shocked to learn on the eve of her wedding that the bridegroom had been killed. Caught up in a whirlwind beyond her control, she found herself married to the new heir, a rough mercenary knight called the Red Devil.
Unsuited to gallantry and the wooing of fair maidens, the Red Devil had never sought a beautiful wife. But now Gytha was his, and her honey gold hair and sparkling blue eyes bewitched him. He knew of only one way he could hope to bind her to him - with the passionate ardor of his hard warrior's body, and the undying love hidden deep in his lonely heart.
