I love books like this. Makes me want to live in the times of the knights.
From the moment he laid eyes on the arrogant White Knight, Lionheart was determined to beat him. Hed been ordered by Prince Edwards to take Cragdon Castle, and the slim young warrior on the pure white steed led the defending forces with with a skill and daring that challenged his own prowess. No man could defeat the renowned Lionheart; he would soon have the White Knight beneath his sword and at his mercy. But storming through the battered portcullis, Lionheart found no trace of his mysterious foe. Instead a beautiful maiden awaited him in the hall, her violet eyes flashing with pride, her head unbowed by defeat. Now a different battle was joined, one that would require subtler tactics, but no less mighty a weapon. She would bathe him, she would bed him, he would take his fill of her. But even as he thought he was gaining the upper hand, his heart was taken hostage by an opponent with far more power than any mere man could possess - the power of love.
Mistaken was his belief that a maiden was no match for a knight. He is unaware that the knight he wants to defeat in combat is the maiden he desires beyond all else.
This is such an awesome book. I couldn't put it down! I loved both the hero, and the heroine!
Romantic story you'll love.
