Jehanne has never stopped loving her husband, Galeran of Heywood. And now he’s returned from war - leaner, tougher, callused in body and soul, longing for his wife and the child he has never seen. In other circumstances, it would be all Jehanne could ever hope for, but time and fate have wrought changes that neither of them could have expected when they kissed goodbye three years ago. For now Galeran has a rival, Raymond of Lowick, an ambitious nobleman who wants everything Galeran had - his lands, his castle, and his wife. He’ll use any means and any deceit to gain control over Jehanne. But Galeran is not a man to give up, no matter what powerful allies Raymond may have. Now, as the glittering court assembles, two men will vie for the same woman, and a battle-weary warrior will mount one last campaign for Jehanne’s safety, and her heart.
