The gentle sister of Ireland's most infamous rebel, Maire O'Byrne remains ever loyal to country and clansmen-until a strange twist of fate carries her to Lord Duncan FitzWilliam, the proud Norman master of Longford Castle. And now she must feign amnesia to ensure her brother's safety-even as her yearning heart seeks the warm shelter of an enemy's arms.
A man of peace in a land seething with rage, Lord Duncan is touched by this mysterious, afflicted lady whom he believes is a pawn in a dangerous family intrigue. Yet desire is Duncan's greatest peril, for his need commands him to tear down the wall of secrets that stand between him and beautiful Maire-and to give himself fully and passionately to a love some would call treason.
