The Lady Would Be His Bride!
The promise of land and marriage to the beautiful Lady Claire, his liege lord's youngest daughter, had been reason enough to send Bernard Fitzgibbons to fight in the Crusades for four long years. Years that turned the callow youth into a man in full — a warrior who lived for the day he'd claim his rewards and settle down to a wife and family.
But the triumph of his return to England had turned to ashes, for not only did Lord Setton deny him his land, he had betrothed Claire to another. Now Bernard had one more enemy to conquer, for deep in his heart, he knew he could never let her go!
