The North of England seethes with discontent under the heavy hand of William the Conqueror, who unleashes his fury on the rebels who dare to defy him. Amid the ensuing devastation, love blooms in the heart of a gallant Norman knight for a Yorkshire widow.
A love neither can deny…A passion neither can resist…

War erupts, tearing asunder the tentative love growing between them, leaving each the enemy of the other. Will Sir Geoffroi, convinced Emma has betrayed him, defy his king to save her?

His eyes fastened on the juicy treat bulging with cooked berries. “You have my thanks, my lady.” Swiftly, he engulfed the sweet and washed it down with a swig of ale.
She laughed, seeing the berry juice dripping from his chin. “You are a sight, Sir Geoffroi.” Reaching for a cloth, she was about to wipe the juice from his face when he reached for her hand.
Taking the cloth, he set it on the worktable and brought her fingertips to his mouth, licking the juice. The sensation of his warm tongue stroking her fingertips stirred a heat deep within her. Involuntarily her lips parted and she took in a quick breath, shivers making her nipples harden beneath her tunic as his tongue moved over her fingers.
His blue gaze fixed on her. “You taste better than the tart and I would have more.”
She regarded his rugged face, browned by his many days in the summer sun. It made his blue eyes all the more striking. His lips curved in a sensual smile, a spot of berry juice still on his mouth. She had the sudden urge to lick it off but before she could do it, his tongue reached out and lapped up the juice.
He pulled her into his chest and gazed intently into her eyes. “Emma, I have longed to kiss you.”
“Then mayhap you should,” she whispered, wanting nothing more.
He bent his head to take her mouth and she was lost in his kiss, the warmth of his chest pressed against her, the taste of the berries on his tongue sliding over hers, seducing her to his will. But it was her will, too. She had wanted this from the first time she had seen him that morning, mayhap for days before that. She tilted her head to allow him to kiss her more deeply, entwining her fingers in the hair at the base of his neck.
Their breaths quickened, her heart raced and a pool of warm liquid settled in her woman’s center.
Breaking the kiss, he pressed his forehead to hers. “Be my lady, Emma. Let me have you and I promise I will never have another.”
She was not shocked at his request, but delighted in his words. Their gazes met and for a time neither spoke. Still, there was much in their eyes. For three years she had been without a man and had wanted none, but she wanted him.
Without a word, she took his rough hand in hers and led him out of the kitchen and up the stairs to her chamber, thinking all the while it was meant to be.
