Cecily Foxe, middle sister to Sybilla and Alys, is practically considered a Saint for her life of calm, gentle sacrifice to others. Although not a member of the convent, everybody thinks it's just a matter of time. And that time is drawing near. But is that what Cecily really wants? She has always lived her life to serve others but there is a small part of her that wonders what if....
What is her childhood betrothal to Oliver Bellecote hadn't been broken by their parents? Would she be happy as a married woman? Or was her life destined to be one of quiet servitude to the Convent?
Watching the lewd revelry at the Candlemas feast with her oldest sister Sybilla, Cecily is appalled, fascinated and ignored by the crowd. Everybody has a partner except Cecily because no man would dare accost Saint Cecily.
However, the new Lord Oliver Bellecote has no qualms at throwing himself at Sybilla and begging her to marry or sleep with him. Cold, stern Sybilla rejects his suit and in jest suggests Lady Cecily. But Oliver knows he is not worthy of the saintly Cecily and only laughs at her expense.
To escape the drunken revelry, Cecily goes to the Foxe Ring to pray, a place reputed to be magic, especially when interested in finding your mate. Cecily prays to find the right path for her life. What she doesn't expect is a drunken Oliver Bellecote riding like a mad man through the Foxe Ring while he chases his soon to be betrothed , Joan Barleg. She is shocked when Oliver is thrown from his horse, injured, right at her feet.
Having used up her patience with Oliver and his drunken ways, Cecily walks off into the ruins of the old Foxe keep with Oliver chasing after her. While Cecily knows the layout of the old keep and what to area to avoid, Oliver heads straight towards the open pit above the dungeon. Reacting quickly Cecily helps push Lord Bellecote out of the path of danger.
Their fall backwards into the old stone wall changes more than they could have dreamed, especially when it escalates into a night of passion between Cecily and Oliver. But what will it mean when morning comes? Will Cecily's reputation be in tatters? What of Oliver's soon to be betrothal to Joan Barleg?
The road to love is never smooth and this tale is no exception. Add the secrets kept by the Bellecote and Foxe families, not to mention that the Foxe family has become an enemy to the King and you have a journey that keeps you riveted from beginning to end of this wonderful book. You won't want to put it down!
