After seventeen years of a civil war, things are about to change.
Reluctant hero Griffyn ‘Pagan’ Sauvage is single-minded in pursuit of his mission: overthrow England. He has vowed to reclaim his beloved home, lost seventeen years ago in a coup of the English crown, and wreak his vengeance upon the man who stole it, John de l’Ami.
He veers from his quest only once, to rescue a brave and beautiful woman from a midnight abduction.
Guinevere de l’Ami, countess of Everoot since her father died two weeks ago, is equally committed to only one thing: redemption.
One fateful night changes everything. A midnight rescue on the king’s highway results in a single night of unforgettable passion. They risk everything for a despair-defying connection neither ever hoped to find.
Their explosive reunion, a year later, follows betrayal and a bloody invasion.
Now cold vows of revenge, the lure of buried treasure, and the deadly enemy closing in threaten a love that could unite a realm, or bring it crashing to the ground.
