Desperate to avoid a forced marriage to Sir Gilliam FitzHenry, the man she claims killed her father, Nicola of Ashby stages a daring escape attempt. To no avail, even though she uses all the warrior's skills she learned at her father's knee, including wielding her sword with deadly effect against a pack of thieves. She cannot elude this knight who is as much her match as her mate.
A fourth son, Gilliam FitzHenry had no hope of ever having his own home or a wife in his arms until he besieged Ashby and claimed its folk as his own. With winter approaching he must take Nicola as his wife and return her to her place as Ashby's lady if his home and folk are to survive the hungry season. Once he's done this, he dared to dream he might one day make this deadly and dangerous woman a wife in more than name only, a task that will demand every bit of his natural talent for taming wild creatures.
