The betrothal between beautiful, headstrong Milisant Crispin and handsome Wulfic de Thorpe has been announced, joining together two of the most powerful families in England. The combined power of their arranged union will be great enough to rival even the king's - so ambitious King John Plantagenet will do anything to prevent the marriage. Milisant and Wulfric are equally unhappy as they are forced to marry for dynastic reasons - but in spite of the unromantic reasons for their alliance and the political manoeuvrings behind the scenes, a grand passion soon unites more

Back cover copy

Seldom have two people about to join together in holy matrimony been so ill-disposed towards each other. Milisant Crispin's beauty is exceeded only by her boldness - hardly an endearing quality to the handsome, arrogant Wulfric de Thorpe, the future Earl of Shefford, who would prefer a more biddable wife. When wulfric arrives at Dunburgh Castle to claim his bride, he expects her to be the wild, impudent young girl he knew in his youth. But instead he finds a stunning beauty, possessed of a passionate fire that could consume any man close enough to feel its warmth. Her father has decreed that Milisant should have a month to get to know the future earl before the marriage takes place, and as time goes by, Milisant desperately searches for a way out. Yet even as she resists, she cannot deny the strange attraction she feels - just as Wulfric finds himself falling under the spell of his proud bride.
