Overview

He arrived demanding that a debt be paid...

Sir Gavin the Bold appears one winter evening demanding payment for saving the life of Baron Clifton de Leraye. The knight claims that he is entitled to marry one of the lord’s three daughters. Except the claim is called into question, and the lord denies making any such agreement...

She sacrificed herself to pay the debt in full

Lady Estella de Leraye is resigned to the fact that as the eldest, she must carefully tend to the family’s honor so that her sisters will marry well and prosper. But with the arrival of the strange knight, that reputation is thrown into turmoil and her sisters’ futures are threatened. Estella now has no choice but to protect what little integrity the family has left, even if that means burying her innermost desires and agreeing to marry the dark stranger.

Conflicted with her needs along with her sisters, she struggles to come to terms with her plight. And all the while, a blazing attraction to the handsome knight burns brighter with each passing moment. And yet despite his charm and allure, she knows that he is hiding something. Is she willing to give away her heart to him knowing that he has a secret and one that she has yet to uncover?

Meet the Author

Dana is the only girl from a family of nine children. As a teenager, there was a constant battle for the T.V. remote, which she lost so she was forced to find her amusement in books. Soon after she discovered historical romance novels from best selling romance writers like Johanna Lindsay, Judith McNaught and Julie Garwood. She read as many as 10 romance books per week, and spent hours with her nose pressed between the pages, skipping meals and cutting out sleep. Medieval romance and love in the Regency era was just too exciting.It wasn’t until she was married with two young kids that she decided to take a stab at writing her own historical romance books. She is intrigued with the idea of writing romance fiction that could bring hours of enjoyment to readers, help them escape from reality, and perhaps remind them how sweet love is and should be. These are the things that she enjoys as a reader, and these are the things that she wants to give back as a writer.Dana resides in a city east of Toronto, Canada. When not writing or reading, she’s dining at local restaurants with her husband and kids and enjoying the spectacular foods of the world.You can learn more about Dana by visiting dana-dangelo.com, or look her up and like her on facebook - "Dana D'Angelo Historical Romance Author"
