From the New York Times bestselling author?the third passionate romance in the Border Chronicles series.

The year is 1461, and the winds of war rage across England, uprooting Alix Givet, the daughter of Queen Margaret?s physician, and the rest of Henry VI?s court. Alix?s plight becomes bleaker still when, out of duty to her queen, and to her ill, widowed father, she?s locked into a loveless marriage to a cruel Northumbrian. But when her luck changes, Alix has another chance to flee?this time to save herself. Escaping north over the border into Scotland, she throws herself at the mercy of a dark and brooding laird who might provide the everlasting love of her dreams?if she can warm his cold heart.

About the Author:

Bertrice Small was the New York Times bestselling author of more than fifty novels. Among her numerous awards, she was the recipient of the RWA Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award. She lived on the North Fork of the eastern end of Long Island, New York, until her death in 2015.

From Publishers Weekly:

Predictability, contrivance and flat dialogue abound in this historical romance by acclaimed author Small. In 1461 war-torn England, Alix Givet is forced to marry a baron's cruel son in order to find refuge for her dying father. When her husband commits suicide, Alix's relief soon turns to horror as her father-in-law announces that he intends to marry her. On foot, Alix runs across the border to Scotland, where she's rescued from a wintry storm by Malcolm Scott, a gruff laird who vowed never to marry again after his first wife betrayed him. A few graphic sex scenes later, the two have fallen in love and married; the rest of the novel they spend dealing with the English baron–cum–raving madman who is convinced that Alix is rightfully his. Two-dimensional characters—either without flaw or completely unredeemable—and hastily dispatched political/historical background sink the story, but Small's included enough steamy scenes that fans should find what they're looking for.
