|They were both outcasts by a harsh decree -- and on the brink of a shared destiny of passion!|
With her father murdered, her home burned, lovely Alyx Blackelt fled to the woods -- and sanctuary in the camp of Raine Montgomery, a nobleman outlawed by the king''s edict. There she hid her beauty in the guise of a boy, and her sorrow in her work as Montgomery''s squire.
But how long could such loveliness as hers be hidden? How long could such a gallant man''s desires be blind? And how soon -- even as a blood feud raged between the Montgomerys and the Chatworths, as angry swords clattered in the name of family honor -- one woman''s love would make all the difference...one woman''s love would inflame a hero''s passion, touch a king''s pity, and raise a song of praise in every English heart.
