Bertrice Small’s Border Chronicles “[sweep] the ages with skill and finesse.”* Now the New York Times bestselling author presents a tale of a young woman and the rugged laird who holds her heart captive....

It’s 1461, and the winds of war rage across England, uprooting Henry VI’s court—including Alix Givet, the daughter of Queen Margaret’s physician. Alix’s plight becomes bleaker still when a Northumbrian baron gains her hand for his cruel son. Duty to her queen and to her sickly widowed father forces Alix into a loveless marriage. But when her husband unexpectedly dies, Alix once again flees—this time to save herself. Escaping over the border into Scotland, she throws herself at the mercy of a dark and brooding laird, who—if she can warm his cold heart—might provide the everlasting love of her dreams.
