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.
