From a crumbling fairy tale castle on the stormy Sussex Coast to a dazzling, dizzying masquerade ball comes an enchanting tale of a charming knight, a daring maiden, and a sweet, searing, storybook love.....
At sixteen, Phoebe Layton had imagined that Gabriel Banner was a brave and valiant knight, a noble-hearted hero born to rescue ladies in distress. Which was why, eight years later, when she desperately needed help to carry out a vital quest, she could think of no one more suited to the job than Gabriel.
But when she lures her shining knight to a lonely, midnight rendevous, Phoebe finds herself sparring with a dangerously, desirable man who is nothing like the hero in her dreams, and when he sweeps her into a torrid--and blatantly unchivalrous--embrace, she can't help but fear that she has made a dreadful mistake. It is a kiss that will seal Phoebe's fate.
Good. Heroine has a limp. Story is into knights and chivalry.
