The Knight's Return
by Joanne Rock

Guarding the Princess...

After being duped into a deceitful marriage, Sorcha Connacht distrusts all men. Most especially the chivalrous warrior who storms her remote Irish fortress under false pretenses. Although this exiled noblewoman vows to ward off his ardent courtship, her traitorous heart rejoices when he brandishes a sword on her behalf!

Hugh de Montagne instinctively knows Sorcha holds the key to his murky past—and their future happiness. At the King’s behest, he’s duty-bound to thwart the flame-haired princess’s attackers at all costs—but surrendering to temptation puts him at a treacherous disadvantage.

Now, as Hugh leaves his beloved behind to head off to battle, can this brave Norman knight reclaim his birthright...and return home a conquering hero?

Joanne Rock's Bio

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.
