Description: Ten years ago, young Elspeth Murray rescued a wounded young knight and lost her heart forever. Now, a stunning beauty and gifted healer, she is reunited with Cormac Armstrong when he saves her from an unwanted suitor. But, Cormac is promised to another, a woman who has blinded him to her ruthlessness. Now, Elspeth must battle against the odds to claim a man and a love she will not be denied. Cormac is stunned by the desire Elspeth's kiss awakens, tries to resist, and fails, the temptation she offers. A man of honour, he is torn by his pledge to another and his growing need for Elspeth. Blinded by duty and indecision, he is unaware that he is a pawn in a clever and deadly trap from which Elspeth is desperate to save him. But, by the time he understands her gift of selfless devotion will it be too late to claim this perfect love?
