New York Times bestselling author Bertrice Small writes searing novels as unforgettable as the indomitable heroines who live and love within them. Now comes a tale of stunning passion, reckless danger, and the fiery will of a remarkable woman who can wield a sword as powerfully as any man--and who dares to fight for her most uninhibited desires. . . .
Spirited, fierce-willed Rhonwyn is the bastard child of the Prince of Wales, raised more boy than girl, able to ride and fight with the best. Against her wishes, she is married off to an English lord, Edward de Beaumont, who is stunned to discover his lovely gilt-haired bride is a spitting wildcat with a mind of her own. Slowly, he wins her trust and her heart, and she accompanies him on the Crusades to North Africa. But when Edward falls ill, Rhonwyn boldly leads his troops, only to become the captive of the sensual Emir of Cinnebar, a man who will teach her the ways of erotic love--passions that will be put to the test when she returns to England to battle once more . . . this time for the man who rules her heart.
