A warrior and a healer, Lothair is accustomed to being caught between objectives. Still, experience has not prepared him for the temptation of Lady Heloise, the beautiful niece of his overlord. The maiden's very presence steals his wits and renders him mute, while her barest glance fills his heart with wild yearning. Lothair has only his name and his honor to offer, which cannot be enough for an heiress, a beauty and a treasure like Heloise. Lothair knows that his charming rogue of a comrade desires Heloise only for her fortune, but is powerless to intervene—until the Lord de Tulley chooses practical Lothair as his heir and husband of lovely Heloise. The maiden pledges defiance, which a less resolute man might consider a bad portent. Lothair is undeterred. Can he prove himself worthy of the affection of his reluctant bride, or is he doomed to watch as his comrade breaks the lady's heart?
