With a kingdom as a prize for the man who wins Lady Matilda’s hand, Simon of Longford knows he faces fierce competition. But since he’s more interested in vengeance on the lady’s sire than securing her father’s riches, he is ready to break all rules to possess her. He isn’t prepared for her to fall into his arms...
Matilda plays a dangerous game to keep her virtue and send errant knights on their way, but she does not trust warriors of her father’s ilk. Her amusement comes to an end when she is captured by a wayward knight who has never even tried to court her. Submitting to his captivity for the sake of a ransom, Matilda sees no escape. But as the hours stretch in the brooding lord’s company, she finds herself tempted by his rash proposals and enticed by his kisses more than she ever imagined...
Three-time RITA nominee Joanne Rock has never met a romance sub-genre she didn’t like. The author of over seventy books currently writes sexy contemporary stories for Harlequin Desire and small town romance for Harlequin Superromance. An optimist by nature and perpetual seeker of silver linings, Joanne finds romance fits her life outlook perfectly—love is worth fighting for. A frequent speaker at regional and national writing conferences she enjoys giving back to the writing community that nurtured and inspired her early career. She has a Masters degree in Literature from the University of Louisville but credits her fiction writing skills to her intensive study with fellow author and friend Catherine Mann. When she’s not writing, Joanne enjoys travel, especially to see her favorite sports teams play with her former sports editor husband and three athletic-minded sons.
