Three years in the writing, Forever in Your Embrace continues the great Woodiwiss tradition, plunging you into the hot-blooded, tempestuous world of Europe four centuries ago.
There, in the depths of a forest, the beautiful and fiercely independent Countess Synnovea suffers a rude interruption in her travels - the arrival of a band of brigands! Robery and rape seem inevitable. Then, out of nowhere, a royal officer rides to Synnovea's rescue - only to disappear again before she has even thanked him.
Who was he? Synnovea gets the answer a few hours later at a rodeside inn - when she inadvertently steps naked into a bathhouse pool that's already occupied by her rescuer! By the time she learns he is Sir Tyrone Rycoft, a British soldier of fortune, she has been piqued by his bold, swaggering ways - and has aroused in him a passion he had long since forsworn.
Though neither of them can know it yet, from now on their fates will be inseparable, during intrigues at court, wars abroad - and one great, explosive scandal.« less
