She Was Beautiful and Alone in a World of Chivalry and Dark Passions
The First Time: Lady Marguerite saw Sir Roland of Guimont, she was at the glittering Plantagenet court, caught in intrigues of state.
The Second Time: She was a traitor's daughter on the brink of a loveless marriage to a boorish fool.
It was to Roland's benefit to wed her to increase his lands — so Marguerite told herself. But how could the powerful knight really care for her? He was a dangerous man — courtier, rake, and some whispered, his brother's murderer — who could have any woman for the asking. It would. never do to love such a man. No matter that his rough, vital, masculine presence filled her body with longing and her heart with flame!
For it could be death to love Roland — and torment to live without him.
