Seeking shelter at Jaufre's abandoned Castle Winterbourne, Melyssan is unprepared for the angry warrior who returns to expose her deception.

Melyssan must strive to find her way back into Jaufre's heart before they are both destroyed by the wrath of a vengeful king.

First...I must say that though there was attempted rape it shows a reality that readers should appreciate. This story portrays the unwinding love between a beautiful dreamer and a sardonic knight. Through the course of the story, both come to face their fears and love. This book was writen perfectly with words that only add to the plot, not taking away anything. It's one of the best played out romances I've read, nothing seems to come easily for these fated lovers.

This was terrible. If you find rape romantic maybe you'll like this book, otherwise stay away.

I'm not prone to reading romance novels, but this was highly recommended to me, and I'll pass the word right along! Carroll's writing is fascinating, taking the road less traveled of the romance genre to give her characters some substance. Their imperfections make this story so much sweeter than the typical 'Devilishly handsome brute steals buxom blonde twit away to castle' synopsis. The plot has more than one twist to it (always a plus) and actually manages to keep you emotionally attached until the happy conclusion. If you're considering this book, buy it; it's worth every penny. Kudos to Carroll!
