Philippa de Beauchamp, as impulsive as she is beautiful, flees her father's castle when she hears she is to be wed to the repellent Baron de Bridgport. But her daring escape in a wool wagon quickly becomes a misadventure, and she winds up in the arms of Dienwald de Fortenberry, a rogue as smooth and bold as Aquitaine wine.
Soon Philippa finds herself a prisoner at Dienwald's castle, where there are mysteries to be solved, villains to be bested, and a stubborn man's heart to be won.
You'll also meet old friends, Graelam and Kassia de Moreton from Fire Song, as well as the king of England, who is closer to Philippa than she could ever imagine. Journey back to thirteenth-century Cornwall, and let me entertain you!
