AD 1272. Recovering from a great tragedy that had befallen his family, Scott de Wolfe, eldest son of William de Wolfe and Jordan Scott, has become a career knight with no feeling, no compassion. As a premier knight for Henry III, Scott has been tasked with the management of the massive fortress of Castle Canaan after the death of the castle's commander. Although it seems like a simple enough task, little does Scott know that the moment he enters this fortress is the moment his life will change... forever.
Lady Avrielle du Rennic is reeling over the death of her husband, and she blames de Wolfe for it. Fed by grief, she lashes out at the big knight who has come to take her husband's place and, eventually, take the fortress. Scott has no patience for the woman in mourning, but he stops short of punishing her because she is the mother to three small children.
When Scott happens to save one of her children from certain doom, a path of healing and understanding begin for them both. But when the king intervenes to take Avrielle and her children away, Scott must fight for what has become precious to him. He cannot stand to lose another family.
A deep and passionate love is born from the ashes of grief in this stunning medieval romance, part of the de Wolfe Pack series.
