Fleeing her uncle's keep with a chest of her dower coin, she believed Lambeth Abbey would be glad to offer sanctuary – with her treasure as payment. Elsbeth never imagined she would be abducted en route by a surly monk, who promptly revealed himself as one of her uncle's knights and hastened to take her home! Arrogant Roger of Angelsey was everything Elsbeth despised in a man-even if he was far more handsome than she cared to admit!
Until He Promised to Steal Her Heart Clearing thieves from St. John's Wood was unpleasant enough before Roger encountered the hellion Elsbeth.

When his plan to secure disputed borderlands met with favor, he found his reward was a bride-Elsbeth!
