Her father has decreed that Milisant has a month to accustom herself to the future earl before the marriage takes place. As the time dwindles, Milisant desperately searches for a way out. But Wulfric is falling under a spell himself, cast by the proud, strong woman who will be pledged to him against her will in a few short days.
And even as the joining of these two young people draws nearer, so too does a threat of danger which could destroy much more than a planned ceremony.
Johanna Lindsey has created two unforgettable characters tied together by circumstance, but sharing a boundless passion that will force them to search their hearts—-and surrender to a yearning far beyond their control.
This was the knight Ranulf, her kidnapper, who was pledged to deliver her into the worst kind of bondage – marriage to the craven Lord Rothwell. But Reina was no acquiescent girl to accept fate’s whim.
To save herself from the union forced upon her, she offered Ranulf a bargain: Become my husband yourself. In exchange for your protection, I will make you a great lord.
The nuptial bed was not part of the bargain. And the haughty Ranulf soon made it clear that he would accept no marriage of convenience: Come to me of your own free will – or I will take you!
