The Black Prince of England hungers to capture the lands of France, and Sir Hyatt Laidley is just the knight for the task. In exchange for years of faithful service, Hyatt will receive both land—and lady—of De La Noye in Acquitane.

When Hyatt and his men attack, both lord and castle fall, but the young and newly widowed Aurelie is not so easily conquered. Impassioned by the subjugation of her people, Aurelie pledges to forever honor her late husband. She may be condemned to marry the English bastard, but her heart will never yield!

But to Aurelie's surprise, Hyatt proves to be everything her former husband was not. Fearless, wise, and devastatingly handsome, he makes for a highly gifted lord and protector. And try as she might, she simply can’t feign indifference to her virile husband’s passionate embrace.

Yet Aurelie is not alone in her emotional torment. Previously robbed of his inheritance and title by a deceitful stepmother, Hyatt can’t bring himself to trust his French wife. But as rivals threaten the welfare of their people, the couple must decide which bond is stronger—allegiance to one's motherland or ties forged from love.

About the Author:

Robyn Carr is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of many novels, including The Virgin River Series.

From Library Journal:

Edward, the Black Prince, eager to re ward his friend Sir Hyatt Laidley, as well as to use his talents to claim and subdue land in France, sends him to conquer De la Noye. In the battle, Giles, lord of De la Noye, dies, and Hy att claims Giles's widow, Aurelie, by right of conquest. She resists him and bitterly resents him, thinking him re sponsible for Giles's death, and lament ing her own loss of power. But both her own strong sexual attraction to him and her growing awareness that he is an ex cellent landowner who promotes the welfare of his subordinates change her attitude. As she grows to love him, he comes to acknowledge at last his love and need for her. Carr works the pa tient Griselda myth better than anyone else. Her heroines are loving, strong, and fair-minded.
