England, 1152. Henry II is king. The country is wracked by bloody civil war. Griffyn Sauvage is a valiant knight with a strict moral code of honour. But when his family's estate and vast treasures are seized, he becomes hardened by the betrayal.

Now he will go to any lengths for vengeance - even if it means forming a union with his most despised enemy by marrying his daughter, Lady Guinevere de l'Ami. Then, Griffyn lays eyes on Gwyn and is completely disarmed...

As war strikes, Gwyn is left alone to fight her enemies who want control of her ancestral lands. When Griffyn comes to her rescue, she is grateful that the mysterious, brave knight has risked his life to protect hers. With each passing day, she finds herself drawn to him even as she senses he's hiding a dark secret from her.

And when another dangerous adversary closes in on both of them, Griffyn and Gwyn's trust in each other will be put to the ultimate test...

"Writing Romance" from the author's Website:

I love writing.

I can feel my fingers actually move towards the keyboard.

I love everything about it, except the times when I’m dying inside because I can’t make it work.

And later, when it passes, I love even that, for its raw, despairing intensity.

I love wondering how to put in ‘cliffhangers’ and red herrings into my stories.

I love trying to figure out whose point of view a scene should be in.

I love developing tortured characters. Poor things, to be stuck in my psyche.

I love figuring out who has the most to lose, then making them lose it.

I love punctuation.

I know, it’s sick.
