The moment widowed Lady Faye Rivellaux sees the tall, commanding warrior riding toward her, she senses the danger in him–a powerful sensuality that she has never experienced before, especially not in her marriage bed. Fighting her unexpected desire, she clings to her promise to rescue the kidnapped little girl she loves as her own. When he demands a ransom she cannot meet, she offers her one last hope: a gold cup.
Former crusading knight Brant Meslarches never expected the widow he was ordered to meet to be a tempting beauty. Nor did he expect to see such a chalice. Worth a small fortune, it’s proof that a lost treasure of the legendary Celtic King Arthur does exist–as Brant’s murdered brother believed. Of all things, the lady has offered Brant the one means to redeem his terrible past.
He makes her a deal: he will help her find the little girl, if she will help him locate the treasure. Faye is uneasy about an alliance with the handsome, scarred rogue, especially when he stirs up strong yearnings within her. Yet, she has no other way to find the missing child. Risking all, she joins Brant’s quest, and as the passion they’ve both denied flares between them, they find a treasure worth more than gold.
