Overview

Amid the flames of royal revolt, their hearts burned with a fierce, wild love.

Elizabeth of Riveaux is the most beautiful—and defiant—nobelwoman in all of Britain. After a disastrous first marriage left her with a secret shame, she refuses to accept any man. As royal factions war for England's throne, she and her knights-in-arms go to Harlowe, the border castle that is her birthright. But out of the mists comes an ambush—and a dark, handsome, broadsword-wielding Scottish lord who saves her life.

Giles of Moray is immediately taken by the raven-haired, emerald-eyed beauty at his mercy, and as unbidden passion envelops them, Giles pledges his freedom and fiefdom to win Elizabeth's heart. All he demands in return is for the forcefully independent Elizabeth to surrender—completely—to the power of their love.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Not much heat gets generated in this fourth book of Mills's Fire series, with sketchily drawn characters spouting implausible 12th-century speech. Immersed in England's dynastic war, the Rivaux family is making a dangerous move by abandoning Stephen of Blois to back the empress Matilda. Elizabeth of Rivaux, a 22-year-old widow, will do her bit by defending her father's castleno comma here. sg Harlowe. Attacked on her way to the castle, Elizabeth is rescued by the Scottish Sir Giles (aka ``the Butcher'') of Moray. Safely delivered to Harlowe, Elizabeth expresses her gratitude by arresting Giles for being an ``impertinent lout,'' but he is prudently released by Elizabeth's grandmother. Giles remains miffed, but attracted to Elizabeth, he treks back from his Scottish home to claim her as his bride--whether she likes it or not. No simple marriage this: Giles, a supporter of Stephen, must settle personal and political differences with Elizabeth and her menfolk as well as contend with problems from her first wretched marriage before they can all become one big, happy medieval family. (July)
