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 them.

One of the world's best-loved authors of historical romance, JOHANNA LINDSEY once again weaves her magical spell in a magnificent tale of an unlikely couple divided by the prospects of an arranged marriage -- but destined to share the deepest union.Beautiful Milisant Crispin and handsome, arrogant Wulfric, the future Earl of Shefford, are engaged -- and seldom has a betrothed couple been less suited. Her father has decreed that Milisant has a month to accustom herself to the future earl before the marriage takes place. As the time dwindles, Milisant desperately searches for a way out. But Wulfric is falling under a spell himself, cast by the proud, strong woman who will be pledged to him against her will in a few short days. And even as the joining of these two young people draws nearer, so too does a threat of danger which could destroy much more than a planned ceremony.Johanna Lindsey has created two unforgettable characters tied together by circumstance, but sharing a boundless passion that will force them to search their hearts -- and surrender to a yearning far beyond their control.
