The Mistress Of Rosecliffe

Rosecliffe

St. Martin's Paperbacks

He captured her legacy then he captured her heart.

Rogue Welsh knight Rhys ap Owain disguises himself as a wandering minstrel and arrives at Rosecliffe Castle to reclaim his birthright and take vengeance on his hated enemy. And Isolde Fitz Hugh will be his pawn. With Isolde's father away, Rhys plans to seize Rosecliffe and his enemy's daughter, striking a mortal blow that is decades overdue. He has everything planned for his siege-- yet he is unprepared for the desire his beautiful hostage will ignite in him...

A stranger lit the fire buried deep within her, yet it is her dire enemy who reveals himself to Isolde in the throes of first passion. How she loathes him, Rhys ap Owain, the man who has brought her such aching pleasure. He used her innocence and desire to gain his stronghold in a plot to extract vengeance upon her family. Yet neither his revenge nor her hatred is a match for the unexpected passion that will force them to confront a destiny much greater than either could ever imagine...
