Overview

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
with a broken leg before he can accomplish his task. Stranded
in London, he takes refuge in the home of a lovely young widow,
and finds himself fascinated by her strengths and
vulnerabilities. But will the widow, whose own past is shrouded
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
