In the wilderness of 14th century Northumbria, Lady Isabel discovers just how dangerous the Borderlands can be. With the loss of her voice and her hearing, there is little hope left for her.
But when a brooding knight rescues her, she vows never to become a victim again and buries the secrets of her past in the hope that those hunting her will never find her in the Borderlands.
Jake is astonished to come across the beautiful Isabel, near to death, on his brother's lands. Bringing her back to his brother's home, he finds himself longing for something more from the courageous woman, something that he thought he would never want again.
Isabel works her way into his scarred heart and opens Jake up to loving once more. But will Isabel's secrets destroy their bond? And with his charismatic brother Dominic charming her, does he even stand a chance?
