England 1076 An era of kings and their loyal knights of grand castles and courts and of passions too bold to be denied Brought to life with power and grace this is the story of a nobleman in need of a wifeand the woman who offers him the love of a lifetimeNicholas FitzTodd Baron of Crane has little interest in marriage—the privileges of rank are too many and too pleasurable But when the bride he finally chooses refuses him he takes out his frustration in wine and women Simone DuRoche is but another lovely temptation until a moment of indiscretion results in a hasty wedding Nick is furious—Simone may be beautiful but she is nearly penniless and rud to be madSimone hardly expects her reluctant husband to believe that her young brother's ghost has followed her to England—or that she suspects his death was murder Marriage to the fierce guarded Nicholas is difficult enough But when she learns the truth behind her brother's death a dangerous family secret threatens the fragile peace she and Nicholas have achieved and she must risk everything she holds dear to prove that her love is worth fighting for

    Nicholas FitzTodd Baron of Crane has little interest in marriage however when he finally chooses a bride she refuses him Taking out his frustrations in wine and women Simone DuRoche is but another lovely temptation until a moment of indiscretion which leads to a hasty wedding Nick is furious Simone may be beautiful but she is nearly penniless and rud to be mad with a father who is so greedy for wealth and power he all but sales Simone to pay his debts So Simone can hardly expects her reluctant husband to believe that her young brother is ghost and has followed her to England or that she suspects that he was murdered Can Simone make her marriage to a fierce guarded Nicholas work or will the her brother's ghost and his murder has other plans for both Nicholas and Simone?
