The illegitimate son of an unknown English nobleman
embarks on his final mission as a mercenary for the lord who
rules him--to rescue the lord's daughter from her abusive
marriage. But a violent robbery occurs leaving the mercenary

by fear and shame, permit herself to embrace the love the
former soldier has to offer?


Praise for Patricia Ryan: * "A wildly romantic love story from
an incredibly gifted author. Few authors can bring the past to
life as vividly as Patricia Ryan." --The Literary Times, for
WILD WIND * "SECRET THUNDER is a superb medieval romance.
Patricia Ryan brings startling freshness to this historical
period." --Affaire de Coeur * "King keep[s] the tension high.
Nonstop outlaw raids, bone-chilling storms, bonds of kinship,
feuds, spies, betrayals, and a divining stone...all lead
inexorably to an explosive resolution." --Publishers Weekly,
for THE RAVEN'S MOON * "Excellent...filled with mythical
legends and deep rooted superstitions that add mystery and
mayhem to an extremely powerful story....Four stars for quality
and imagination." --Rendezvous, THE BLACK THORNE'S ROSE
