CAN A DAMSEL IN DISTRESS
Hugh of Manche has lived a man’s life, fighting for king and country. He’s built his reputation as the toughest, most violent knight in the land. But when his loyalty is rewarded with the title Baron of Morven, when the king gives him the castle and lands that go with it, Hugh finally has a home of his own. He arrives at Morven and—in an effort to keep the peace—is determined to wed the prior lord’s daughter. He’s heard that the girl is a timid, shy maiden, and he’s resigned to the match. So he’s unprepared to encounter a fiery vixen who stirs his blood in ways he’d never imagined.
TAME THE WICKEDEST KNIGHT IN THE KINGDOM…
Anne of Morven has always wanted to become a nun, and she hopes to take the veil—if only she can get her cruel stepmother to agree. She’s always felt that a life of piety and prayer would calm her more wicked impulses. When Lord Hugh arrives, ready to claim his rights, Anne is the first person to learn how ruthless he can truly be. From the moment he lays eyes on her, he’s determined that she will be his bride. Nothing will dissuade him in his quest to make her his own.
As Lord Hugh forces Anne to the altar, then tutors her in the ways of the marriage bed, lust blossoms and sweeps them away. Can love be far behind?
