An unexpected warmth tingled through her veins—here was a friend.
The warmth gave way to a chill.
A friend who could spoil everything.
Another thought made her hesitate. Before her lay a powerful man. But even she, living quietly at Stonehill, knew Henry of Chauvere’s story. He’d been struck down defending King Richard from attack following the king’s release from captivity three years earlier. Since then, he struggled to recover from those near-fatal wounds. According to tales she’d heard, he still could scarcely lift his sword arm.
The knight eyeing her through narrowed lids appeared far from feeble.

The Lady of the Forest
Back Cover Copy:
He must pursue his enemy; she must protect her people. Can their love survive the duties that drive them apart?
When her elderly husband dies, Lady Katherine fakes her own death and disappears into the forest with others escaping the brutish new lord. Determined to protect her people, she knocks the wrong man senseless. But Lord Henry isn’t an enemy, he’s the brother of her childhood friend. Although his tender confidence tempts her, she’s bound by duty.
Henry of Chauvere has found the one lady he wants for his own, never mind she’s tied him hand and foot. When he learns the king has ordered her to wed Stonehill’s ruthless new master, he insists Kate seek haven with his sister. But she won’t desert her friends. Henry vows to solve her problem, provided he catches a traitor before the threat from Kate's past catches her.
When a daring rescue compels Henry and Kate to join forces, their attraction grows into love. If only duty didn’t drive them apart.
