Overview

A warrior with questionable intentions . . .

Jamie Lost is the king’s most renowned commander, a fearless lieutenant ordered to kidnap an exiled priest before rebel forces close in. The mission is simple—until he meets a mysterious thief who will steal his quarry and then his heart.

A lady of remarkable courage . . .

Beautiful Eva is also seeking Father Peter, but she intends to protect him from a secret that could cost him his life. She senses that she, too, should fear Jamie—not just for his wickedly sharp sword and dangerously muscular body, but for the powerful longing he ignites within her.

A secret that could overthrow the king.

When a band of mercenaries abducts the priest, Jamie and Eva must form a volatile alliance. As civil war unfolds around them, they embark on an epic journey that betrays the truth about their hidden identities, their unexpected loyalties, and the simmering attraction that could seal their fates forever.

Publishers Weekly
Medieval England and its tumultuous history is the backdrop for this daring romance. Jamie Lost a top lieutenant and right-hand man for King John is sent to retrieve Peter of London because Father Peter has information and secrets that could turn King John's reign into ruins. Jamie is not alone in his search—Eva is back after fleeing England 10 years prior and with the help of her charge, Roger, is determined to find Father Peter as well. He protected them for years, and now is Eva's chance to return the favor. When another interested party attempts to kidnap the priest, Jamie and Eva forge a tenuous alliance. Despite their simmering attraction to one another, neither will stop their missions—to keep Father Peter and the secrets he holds safe. The love story is both sensual and charming, with flirtatious and sizzling encounters. Kennedy has a way with words, and the witty banter between Jamie and Eva is a great pleasure to read. The history is absorbing and well-woven through this satisfying novel. (May)
