Martine of Rouen resolves never to fall in love after her mother drowns herself in despair over a broken heart, but for her brother's sake she allows herself to be betrothed, sight unseen, to Edmond of Harford. The union has been negotiated by lowborn knight Thorne Falconer in exchange for the estate he covets more than anything--certainly more than love, hence the need to resist his desire for the beautiful and enigmatic Martine. Thorne never suspected he'd have to protect her from savagery at the hands of Edmond and his vicious brother, but he does, in the only way he can--by marrying her himself. Originally published by NAL.
