When the only man she can trust is known for his dishonorable past, what could go wrong?
A Dishonorable Man
Thomas Brisbois of Kelso has only one goal when he arrives at the tournament—to defeat the only knight who ever bested him in battle. If he succeeds, the Scottish king will return to him his lands, his honor, and his life. He has little interest in other prizes, and even less when he learns that the lord for whom his rival fights has included a daughter among the spoils at stake in their contest—a lovely daughter with no desire to play the pawn, or to see her father's champion win. She is a distraction, all the more after she explains her own ideas about which knight shall have her, and how and when.
A Desperate Woman
Annora may be a pawn in her father's plans but she has no intention of letting that happen without a fight of her own. When she sees the frank desire in Thomas' gaze for her, she makes her own offer—she'll help him win if he'll let her go... after he beds her. Her plans go awry when she discovers the truth of the man beneath the armor. The man who had lost everything and struggles to regain his life.
Only the ultimate tournament battle will reveal if she's made the biggest mistake of her life or if she's found the answer to all her problems in trusting an outlaw's honor.
