He was her enemy
Eloise Hamelin is stunned to learn her father has been charged with treason. Worse, a ruggedly handsome, arrogant knight – who once deemed her an unsuitable bride for his now deceased brother – has been given a royal command to oversee Lelleford until after the trial’s outcome. Determined to find the truth behind what she is certain are fallacious charges, Eloise sets out to prove her father’s innocence and rid her home of Roland St. Marten, even as her traitorous body yearns to submit to his magnetic appeal – and her heart aches with the love she cannot ignore, nor hope to keep.
She could bring him to ruin
Roland St. Marten knows the royal command is his best chance to prove his loyalty and value to his king, to earn a holding of his own and a higher position at court. All he must do is keep the peace and ensure that Lelleford doesn’t suffer in Sir John Hamelin’s absence. Unfortunately, Hamelin’s beautiful, headstrong daughter proves a menace to Roland’s willpower and ambition. As the trial approaches and he’s forced to aid Eloise’s attempt to learn the truth, he must decide what he’s willing to risk for his king and country – and for the irresistible love that could prove his downfall.
