Sir Simon Innes is the kingís bloodhound. Wherever there is a conspiracy, he will sniff it out, find out the plan, and know who all is involved in the plot. He does his job and he does it well. So well, those in the kingís court are summarily uncomfortable around him, even the innocent ones. He is starting to feel empty about his job, as if the evil that he has pledged his life to eradicate has contaminated him, until this little bitty woman who is wanted for murder, clothed in a nunís outfit darkens his door and has the audacity to ask for help. When Simon peers into her eyes, he begins to look for the truth of her desire, but he knows he has to unveil the truth that holds her life and the life of her clan in the balance.

Her family sent her too him to find out the truth, while they are all running and hiding for their lives. This hardened kingís man is no match for the determined Ilsabeth. When she sees him, she feels the fire in her blood and the desire erupts from her body, and she realizes he is the one for her. The thing is she has murder and treason over her head. Maybe if they can get that cleared up, the real business can begin. Ilsabeth getting her man!
