The Valiant Heart
A beautiful heiress and pawn of the king . . .
Dispossessed of her lands by the marauding Norsemen, Brienne Beaumanoir is brought from cloister by royal decree and offered as a bride to her enemy.
A golden warrior of the North . . .
Sent to escort his father’s promised bride to the Barony of Valsemé, Rurik Atlison finds himself entranced by the dark-haired beauty and his passions set aflame.
Love unexpected, bringing peril to all . . .
Tormented by their desires, Rurik and Brienne resist giving in to their yearnings and endangering their people.
But destiny will not be denied . . .
Their love will burn brightly through all the ages to come as Norse and Frank meld into a new people — the Normans.
