Very different story line and very good.
"Come, Lord Death, and Grant Me Life In Your Arms:
Such invocations sprang to Lady Tonia's lips when she beheld Sandor Matskella, the sworn agent of her etrnal rest. Yet his raw masculine power instead roused her slumbering womanhood to the dawn of eternal joy!
Lady Gastonia Cavendish had only wanted to start her own nunnery far away from the secular world, but her devotion to the Catholic religion was a dangerous thing in Protestant-ruled England. Tried and convicted of heresy because of her religion, she was sentenced to death and banished to the crumbling castle of Hawksnest until her executioner arrived to carry out her death sentence.
Sandor Matskella is the unlucky man who has been chosen to be Gastonia's executioner. A Gypsy, his people are despised in England. He was an unwilling executioner; his young cousin was held in the Tower of London until the dastardly deed was done, and Sandor's uncle was too ill to perform the execution himself. Once he lays eyes upon the beautiful and charming Gastonia, however, Sandor isn't sure how he could possibly execute such a wonderful woman. Will he follow the King's orders, or his own heart?
