When Gavin of Ashgrove and his closest friend are captured
in a fierce battle during the Hundred Yearsï¿½ War, their
captors demand a hefty ransom from their fathers for their
return. Robert is quickly set free, but Gavin’s father
refuses to pay for his son’s release, leaving him to
rot in a squalid French prison. Aided by a sympathetic
priest, he escapes and returns home to England, only to find
he has been proclaimed a bastard and disinherited.
With nowhere to turn, Gavin journeys to Kentwood, where he
fostered as a boy, hoping Lord Aldred will take him on as a
knight in his guard. The old warrior is close to death, but
he soon realizes Gavin is his son. Aldred plots to have
Gavin inherit Kentwood and marry his much younger wife,
Elizabeth, a famed and opinionated beauty who remains a
virgin after a decade of marriage.
Will the king recognize Lord Aldred’s first request of
a marriage between Elizabeth and Robert, uniting
Robert’s estate with Kentwood—or will the
temperamental Edward reward Aldred’s years of service
and honor a dying man’s final request?
