Description

Margerit Sovitre did not expect to inherit the Baron Saveze's fortunes--and even less his bodyguard. The formidable Barbara, of unknown parentage and tied to the barony for secretive reasons, is a feared duelist, capable of defending her charges with efficient, deadly force. Equally perplexing is that while she is now a highly eligible heiress, Margerit did not also inherit the Saveze title, and the new baron eyes the fortunes he lost with open envy. Barbara, bitter that her servitude is to continue, may be the only force that stands between Margerit and the new Baron's greed--and the ever deeper layers of intrigue that surround the ill-health of Alpennia's prince and the divine power from rituals known only as The Mysteries of the Saints. At first Margerit protests the need for Barbara's services, but soon she cannot imagine sending Barbara away--for reasons of state and reasons of the heart.
Heather Rose Jone debuts with a sweeping story rich in intrigue and the clash of loyalties and love.
