This is the game they play. Charles the Hammer Martel has returned home from war, and his bloodlust has fueled his passions. A great hall full of willing women, and yet, the most powerful man in all of Europe has eyes for only one.
Melisandra fills his knights’ cups and refuses to meet The Hammer’s advances. There is only one thing to do with such a willful wench. With the help of his trusted knights, The Hammer restrains his headstrong maid and takes her for all to witness — rough and unprotected.
