* Caught as a Thief, Her Penalty Rouses A Searing Passion * In 14th century England, a long-kept secret devastates Rowan Langley. Anger sends him on a quest for truth. He trusts no one, keeping others away, except fellow knight Gerard. Aeron Dawkyns, fleeing Wales and a charge of murder, lives on the street, pickpocketing. She steals Rowan's coin. Later, Rowan catches her attempting to steal his horse. She has a choice - serve them both with her body, or be handed over to be hanged. She chooses Rowan and Gerard. Serving an angry Rowan has dark pleasures Aeron learns to crave. She feels safe, despite the knights' wicked games. When Rowan drags her back to Wales, she fears that safety will be destroyed. Rowan learns Aeron's plight and vows to hunt down her enemies, promising to protect and keep her. Yet he worries he's no better than her enemy. Still, he craves his slave's touch, as much as he craves her heart. Staying with Rowan becomes Aeron's heart's desire - but could mean her death. ** Featuring A Kinky Twist on History! including male domination, bondage, spanking, multiple partners and more!
