To tame a shrew...
By king’s decree one of the de Burghs must marry the daughter of their fallen enemy. She’s a notorious hellion rumored to have murdered her first husband on their wedding night, and none want to be her second.
A scholar as well as a knight, Geoffrey de Burgh values knowledge as much as his sword. But he can’t explain why he’s drawn to the maddening woman he must make his wife. And someone wants him dead. Is it his bride?
Elene Fitzhugh would have no husband and vows to drive him away with the point of her dagger. But the gallant knight is unlike any man she has ever known. And she must arm herself against a new threat—the power of attraction.
