The only man who’s tempted her…Now poses as her husband!
When an injured knight arrives on Brida O’Conaill’s doorstep, the village assumes he’s her long-lost husband. But her only previous connection to Sir Thomas Lovent was an intense shared moment at a tournament years ago. Brida maintains the pretense while she nurses him, yet once he’s back to full, virile health, she cannot reveal Thomas is not her husband—or that she’s unmarried!—when everyone is expecting them to act like husband and wife…

Brida O’Conaill promised her mother she would remain unwed for the rest of her days, and to keep such promise, she invented an absent husband to keep the man in the village at bay.
When Sir Thomas Lovett, a former acquaintance, arrived at her doorstep hurt, Brida had no alternative but to bring him into her cottage and claim him as her husband.
Brida and Thomas had skeletons in their closets, and their strong personalities clashed at every turn while their attraction to each other became stronger.
This medieval romance has tons of espionage, adventure, a bit of spice, and a lot of banter and chemistry between the couple.
