A destiny that cannot be denied...
The handsomest of the de Burgh family of knights, Stephen enjoys wine, women, and comfort. He doesn’t want to protect anyone headed into the wilds of Wales, especially witchy Brighid l’Estrange, the one woman immune to his charms.
Brighid disdains her l’Estrange heritage, but she doesn’t need any special skills to know that Stephen de Burgh is trouble. She would rather go alone to discover the reason for her alchemist father’s summons and sudden death.
But they can’t defy the Earl of Campion—or their destiny.
