A maiden of Normandy, mistakenly abducted . . .

Kidnapped from the ducal palace of Rouen, Ailénor quickly realizes her captors’ mistake and the peril that yet threatens her mother. As the ruffians smuggle her aboard ship, bound and gagged, and set forth for Ireland, she is desperate to escape . . . unaware her champion is near at hand.

A Saxon lord on a secret mission for his king . . .

No sooner does Garreth of Tamworth arrive in Normandy than he encounters the entrancing scarlet-haired maiden who literally knocks him off his feet.

The Defiant Heart

The mighty fleet of drakken swept north, carving the fog-bound sea. Swift and silent they coursed, triumphant high-prowed dragon ships, their hulls heavy with plunder—serpents in the mists . . .
Onward they plowed through trackless ocean and sunless haze, bearing their precious cargo — ivory, gold, and womanly flesh — far from the Isle of Eire, far to where gelid shores and hoarfrost lairs brinked the earth.
A horn brayed long and deep, sending chills to crawl over Ailinn as the lead vessel signaled its companions through the curtain of gray. The others quickly took up the call and repeated the blast from stern to stern till the waters vibrated with the sound of trumpeting beasts.

Thus begins the perilous adventure of a beautiful Irish captive and shining warrior of the North who vows to save her. Join Ailinn and Lyting as their story sweeps from the shores of Ireland to the lands of the Rus and the glittering courts of Byzantium. Amid dangers and intrigue, their passions set fire and will not be denied.
