The ‘little’ de Wolfe Brother, Thomas, is no longer little. The de Wolfe cub has become a big, powerful Wolfe all his own…
1290 A.D. – Thomas de Wolfe, commander of Wark Castle, an outpost for Castle Questing, his father’s powerful fortress, has come out from the shadow of his mighty father and brothers. Now, they call him StormWolfe for his fearlessness and cunning. Where Thomas de Wolfe goes, storms are sure to gather.
Thomas is rightly feared along the borders just as his father was, because there is no Sassenach knight more courageous or deadly than a de Wolfe. But along with the qualities that make him fearsome, he is also know for being highly intelligent and more than a match for the reivers that run raids along the borders. In the fight against the reivers, Thomas leads the charge.
But he has a weakness…
Lady Maitland de Ryes is descended from a great Norman family who used to be big landholders in the north. But the family wealth was lost by her careless father, who sold off the lands to feed his gambling habits, and when he died, he left his daughter destitute but for the charity she ran, an orphanage south of Kelso Abbey.
Thomas has long been fond of Lady Maitland, and the de Wolfes watched with sadness as the great de Ryes family collapsed. Years ago, Thomas proposed marriage to Maitland, once, but she declined, instead preferring to tend her charity. She had a fondness for Thomas, but she doesn’t love him, much to the knight’s heartbreak. He hasn’t seen her in some time until word comes from the Scots that Maitland’s charity was hit by the reivers.
It’s Thomas to the rescue.
Maitland hardly recognizes the youngest de Wolfe brother, who is now big and muscular, with flowing dark hair past his shoulders. When they meet again, this time, something sparks within her, but Thomas is cold, at least on the outside. He doesn’t want to be hurt again. But inside, the fires of attraction are burning yet again…
Join Thomas and Maitland as Thomas appoints himself protector of Maitland’s orphanage, yet deep secrets Maitland is keeping from him threaten both of their lives. The charity is not what it seems, and the truth could destroy a love that has built from the ashes of rejection.
It’s another action-packed de Wolfe Pack novel that is sure to leave you breathless!
