Sir Alex de Beaumont has been a prisoner of war for many years and the only thing that has kept him from losing all hope is thoughts of his wife and the vision of how she made love to him on their wedding night. After Alex is able to escape the prison that has kept him caged up for so many years, Alex discovers that the wife he left behind is planning to marry another man.
Lady Katherine suffered betrayal and loss after her husband left her right after their wedding night without any warning. Now, years later after being presumed killed during a battle, Sir Alex de Beaumont returns to stop Kat’s wedding to Sir Luc de Joinveille.
Sinister plots have been set into motion way before we meet our main characters and their current dilemmas. Someone is determined to eliminate Kat and cause Alex as much pain as possible in the process. In order for Alex to have any chance at reconciling and gaining forgiveness from Kat, he must find out who was responsible for his betrayal and capture, as well as who is trying to kill Kat.

Those of us that enjoy this type of novel will eat this one up in a day. You will love these two strong characters and feel their pain and struggles with each other as well as against the hidden dangers that loom nearby. I would immediately recommend this book to all lovers of historical romance.
