A woman in search of revenge.... An honorable man with a dark past.
It is 1197, and King Richard, known as the "Lionhearted," is fighting France while Prince John hatches his own plans back home.
To find her father's killer, Helena of York must pose as a Norman in the great halls of Richard's England. Her only desire is to kill the man who destroyed her father and her future. Should she be unmasked, her life will be forfeit.
Stephen, Count of Dinan, once Richard's friend and trusted knight, is outcast for reasons shrouded in mystery. Known as the "Black Baron," he is friendless in a glittering world he despises. His only goal is to restore his honor and once again serve his king.
Stephen's suspicions draw him into Helena's web of deceit, and the two outsiders find themselves tangled in a conspiracy that threatens the throne of England itself, while their embattled hearts grapple with a far greater challenge.
Heart of Vengeance is part of the Jewels of Tomorrow series.
