From the windswept, craggy coast of a remote British Isle comes the thrilling tale of a daring lady and a dangerous knight... bound by the tempests of fate--and the dawning of... Desire

Upon her father's death, beautiful, headstrong Lady Clarre knew that she must wed, for the protection of the Isle of Desire new fell to her. Yet when her guardian's choice of prospective husband rode through her castle gates, she felt utterly betrayed. All sinewy muscle and savage steel, Sir Gareth of Wyckmere was not the poet she'd requested but a fearsome knight whose only interest was in war.

Legions of robbers had fallen beneath the Hellhound of Wyckmere's sword, and now this bold warrior was certain that he could tame one willful wife. Yet even Gareth could not deter Lady Clare from trying to mold him into her ideal... until their clash of wills ignited a passion that set them both aflame... and a treacherous plot put their lives in deadly peril.

A lovely historical romance from Jayne Ann Krentz (aka Jayne Castle, aka Amanda Quick). Gareth is a dark and forbidding landless bastard knight who is looking for a place to belong and is not given to romantic gestures or inclinations. Lady Clare is used to being the head of her household, her business of perfumes, and the isle of Desire and welcomes no lord or husband. Their dance for love and understanding takes place amid some intrigue and betrayal and makes for a fairly simple but beautiful tale.
