A Passionate Historical Romance!
Poena and Evangeline, twin daughters of the evil Baron LaTrovin, have spent the last fourteen of their twenty-one years secluded from all Niobrean society in a convent. Now they have been taken prisoner by the brawny, good-hearted Seigneur Alaric DeCastille, a clan leader of the warrior class forced to the unprecedented act of marching on the higher-ranking Baron to avenge the cold-blooded murder of DeCastille's people. But the cowardly Baron LaTrovin has fled, leaving Poena and Evangeline to the mercy of the invading war horde.
Fortunately, Poena soon discovers they are safe in the hands of the chivalrous DeCastille. Soon she learns, however, that he may not be as safe with her and her sister in his hands. He dare not turn them loose, for fear of what the Baron's other enemies might do. And to take them back to his clan's fortress, the Rill, would shake the very foundation of Niobrean society as noble women never set foot on clan land.
After a few hours with DeCastille, Poena knows which option she wants him to choose. But she little realizes the arabesque of danger, love, and intrigue she will enter once inside the walls of Rill castle. It is an experience that will change her from a naive young girl to a passionate, full-blooded woman -- one willing to brave whatever dangers it takes to win the man she loves.
