Overview

Abigail d'Alene has been sinfully in love with learning all her life, and she now has the means and freedom to indulge in her passion. Disguised as a boy, she heads to the Latin Quarter of Paris and the abbey schools that will one day change the world.

Shocked by the ineptitude of her masquerade, Alain of Huntly Woods takes Abigail under his protection until she recovers her sense and goes home. But her audacity and intelligence spark enough friction between them to burn through his cold logic and carefully laid plans.

In 1159 Paris as a spy for Henry II, Alain has sold his soul to the Angevin devil in exchange for the king's promise of an heiress, land and power. As his good intentions bring him unexpected passion, he struggles to find a way to have it all. Then he discovers Abigail's uncle, confessor to King Louis VII of France, plots against the English king, and Alain must choose between protecting his king or the woman he loves.

About the Author

Keena was born in Dayton, Ohio, and moved with her family to a farm slightly to the left of nowhere when she was four. She grew up with pigs, cows, brothers and a half-broke pony named Star. She learned to read by picking words out of an old history book that vividly recounted the past through short stories centered on children of the age: the Grecian slave boy; the girl from Pompeii; the knight's squire in England.
The stories stayed with her. She studied history, English and philosophy in college, earning a bachelor's degree in history at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio. She studied medieval history in graduate school at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, which explains why she sometimes spends a rainy afternoon reading the Domesday Book or the Oxford English Dictionary.
After careers in journalism and public relations, she set out to write a medieval murder-mystery with a minstrel sleuth. But her hero decided to woo the local innkeeper instead, and the murder-mystery transformed into an historical romance-a lucky break for the intended victims.
When not working or writing romance, Keena regales her niece and nephews with stories of quick-thinking ladies, mathematically challenged knights, and ill-mannered dragons that chew with their mouths open.
