Promised to the cloister, the free-spirited Lady Mercia returns home before her final vows for her sister Rowena’s wedding to a Welsh prince. But fate intervenes when she finds a badly wounded man washed up upon the shore.
Unable to resist his fevered pleas for her help, she hides him amongst the caves she played in as a child. And there, as she nurses the handsome stranger back to health, she discoverers a passion for him she cannot resist. Knowing she is promised to God and will never know the touch of man, Mercy gives in to her heart’s desire and her body’s craving.
On his way to his betrothed, Lady Rowena, Prince Rhodri of Dinefwr is shipwrecked and badly wounded, with no memory of who he is. But he does not care; an angel of Mercy has come to claim his mind, body, soul, and–soon–his heart.
Yet fate intervenes again when Rhodri regains his memory and realizes his one true love is the sister of his betrothed. Though honor bound to marry a woman he has never met, Rhodri’s heart belongs to Mercy.
Can Mercy and Rhodri find a way to be together without sacrificing their honor…?

"Sumptuous, Sexy, Superb! If you've been waiting for the perfect Medieval series, this is it. Karin Tabke does for Norman knights what JR Ward has done for vampires, with hot alpha heroes and the fiery heroines who tame them. I can't wait for the next book!" -- Monica McCarty, New York Times Bestselling author
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Award-winning author Karin Tabke isn't just another author with steamy stories to tell, but a cop's wife who has "seen it all and heard it all." Some of the hottest stories come from behind the blue wall of law enforcement rather than from in front. Married to a street cop, now retired, Karin is intimate with both and proves it with her sizzling tales of hot cops. Not only are her cops hot, but so are her sexy knights and bad boy lycans. Karin's Blood Sword Legacy series is a must read for anyone who loves tales of yore when men were men and women were women, and love did conqueror all. Her dark, erotic Blood Moon Rising paranormal trilogy is best described as "Sons of Anarchy meets Rise of Lycans." Her L.O.S.T. series (w/a Karin Harlow) is paranormal romantic suspense at its "chilling and sizzling" best. You don't want to miss any of Karin's deliciously edgy tales of danger and passion!
