In this “Canterbury Tales” set in Scotland, runaway bride Lady Rosamund of Averleigh joins a pilgrimage and flies straight into the arms of a dark and mysterious mercenary who goes by the name of Blade.
Haunted by an unforgivable crime, the once noble swordsman, Sir Pierce of Mirkhaugh, now wanders Scotland as the sword-for-hire known as Blade. His latest mission—to unmask two assassins among the pilgrims bound for St. Andrews—goes awry when spirited Rosamund of Averleigh joins the entourage, tempting Blade from his solitude and making him believe in redemption.
What he doesn’t know is that Rose is fleeing for her life. With an abusive bridegroom tracking her, her only hope is to seek refuge as a nun…until she meets Blade, who awakens her passions and destroys her best-laid plans.
