Lady Sofia Howard has sworn never to marry after her young heart was broken by an arrogant young squire. She’s spurned every suitor to the dismay of her guardian, King Edward I, who finds that even increasing her dower prize will not lure men to offer for the defiant, but lonely Sofia. So the king takes matters into his own hands and betroths Sofia to Sir Tobin de Clare, the man who once broke her heart.
Nothing will stop this ruthless warrior from winning her hand. Nothing, that is, except Sofia’s tattered pride and her demand that he also surrender his heart. In a rousing battle of will and wit that makes war seem peaceful, one powerfully determined knight and his spirited lady find that love at first sight is never, ever easy.
