Overview

Her beauty and spirit ensnared him. If only he could free his heart from her treachery…

Celiese d’Loganville lives as a shadow. Though she is the beloved handmaiden of Viking lord Raktor’s spoiled pretty daughter, it matters little. She is a slave in a gilded cage who tells no one of the violent Viking raid that haunts her memories. Or the daily nightmare her life has become.

When her mistress refuses to wed a man rumored to be horribly disfigured, Celiese seizes her one chance for freedom. Maybe even love. No one needs to know that the face behind the veil is a mere substitute.

Mylan Vandahl has no need of a wife who’d pity him. But the enchanting—and perplexing—young woman presented to him boldly ignores his scars even as her eyes betray a nameless fear. Rousing within him a need to soothe her with gentleness she clearly doesn’t expect…and seduce her with tender persuasion.

After a wedding night of unparalleled passion, treachery is revealed in the rising dawn. Instead of taking her place at her husband’s side, Celeise finds herself in the fight of her life. For the dream of home and family…and to regain Mylan’s shattered trust.

First Printed by Zebra books in 1985.

Warning: Contains a warrior and a woman worthy of him, and an unforgettable adventure with love as the ultimate prize.

    Good plot and realistic to the era but ....

    I was excited to try out a new author but as the book went on it became more difficult to get thru. (Not due to writing, just do to emotional sircustances these two found themselves in.) I thought at some point the main character Mylan would realize his treatment of Celiese was uncalled for and his mistaken deception would be forgiven and everything happy would result.

    I was wrong. It was just heart tearing the treatment he put her thru thinking she had decieved him countless times and lied to him. In this day and age you did what your master told you or you died. In her case he should have seen the results of her saying no and what she would have gone back home to.

    It was a long drawn out book with some really great parts and then some parts where I wanted to throw my nook at the wall because I was so angry with the way they treated eachother and believeing the worst in one another, more so Mylan than Celiese. It was good but not great. I consider it an Ok read.
