Immortal Jurian Locke is haunted by ancient memories as he walks the road toward London to enter King Edward's last tournament of the season. Cursed by a jealous enchantress in distant times, Jurian is bound to await his soul mate's rebirth and respond to her need in times of danger.
Lady Elena Gregory blames her lame leg for her lack of suitors. As the Earl of Hawthorn's only daughter, she has received only two unacceptable marriage proposals. Somehow, she must appear less damaged and more desirable at the Yule tournament. No easy task when the simple act of crossing a broken field is almost more than she can accomplish.
In a time when acts of valor and chivalry are rewarded, can a simple man-at-arms hope to gain enough favor to be deemed worthy of an Earl's daughter, and the only woman he can ever love.
