But his destiny is to fall in love with the daughter of his family's sworn enemy.

More praise for Anna Markland:
"Her books are page turning reads. I can't put them down. Ms. Markland has created true to life characters. They are real people struggling with real problems and dangerous challenges."

"The book's scenes of intimacy are well written. Set in the tapestry of ongoing conflict and politics in the 12th century, this sensual, bittersweet love story is beautifully written."

"The research in this book shone through every page. Many facts about the rivalries, battles and governing royalty were woven into the story...so if you like history, you'll love Passion in the Blood."

"Anna Markland weaves a fantastic tale of love, passion, raw emotions and inner conflict. Ms. Markland has obviously studied the medieval period well. The characters become real people and I was transported back to medieval times, with all their trials and tribulations. The historic detail wound into their love story is simply brilliant! A fantastic read!"
