In the wildwood around Rosecliffe Castle, Welsh rebels plot to destroy the English interlopers. Very loyal to the Welsh cause, Rhonwen ap Thomas has nothing but hatred and animosity for the English - that is until fate finds her seduced by her enemy. Kissed into submission by the man she has sought to kill, she now finds herself his prisoner.
Though Rhonwen had saved his life when they were children, her role in the plot to destroy his family demands that Jasper FitzHugh show no mercy to his beautiful and seductive captive. He is ravaged by desire to take her to his bed and show her that it is more pleasurable to make love than war.
Caught up in the storm of their emotions, neither can predict the dangers that will force them to choose between their loyalties or their hearts.
This was a very heartwarming story of love, courage and trust. Rhonwen is a very strong, independent woman who only wants to bring revenge onto the English. Jasper is also very strong but doesn’t deny his feelings or desire for Rhonwen, but does his best to bring her around to accept what they cannot change…love.
