Lord Robert, Norman ruler of the most north-easterly region of England, spares the life of Emma, the pregnant widow of an Anglo-Saxon rebel. When his wife dies in childbirth, he asks Emma to become nurse to his son at Danburgh Castle.
On arrival at the castle, Emma discovers that the widowed Lord Robert is already promised to Fiona, the daughter of a Scottish thane. This arrangement does not, however, prevent Lord Robert from making advances towards his nurse. Emma resists Lord Robert’s attentions, but finds she is increasingly having to deny her own desires in order to do so.
A short, sensual Medieval romance.

"The plot was tight and kept me engaged, good characterisation meant I truly cared about what was happening," (4 star review, April 2012).
"Fitted the time-frame of the early Norman conquest of England; I wanted to read more."
