Synopsis:

When a French woman is married off to the handsome Scot who conquered her town, she is determined not to let him conquer her heart as well.

The English army’s siege of Aville has ground to a standstill–until a ten-year-old Scottish lad masterminds a breakthrough. The castle falls easily, giving glory to the king and a place at court to young Adrien MacLachlan. But his greatest reward is still to come.

Years later, the king decrees that Adrien shall marry Danielle d’Aville, a maiden of the town Adrien helped conquer. She loathes the strapping Scottish knight, but his strength stirs something inside of her–a passion that betrays everything her vanquished people stand for. As Danielle’s hatred for him pushes her towards treason, her budding love is the only thing that can pull her back from the brink.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Heather Graham, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

Hott Review:

The major theme of this book is a girl/woman who fights against herself. She’s fighting her love of an Englishman to keep a deathbed promise – or is she?

This book almost deterred me because it’s huge and I generally do not like long books. However, Ms. Graham drew me right in and gave me the romance of a lifetime. It was humorous, authentic, and adventurous.
