Worse, this irresistible woman is determined to prove herself immune to Erik's charms--a challenge he cannot resist.

Still, he is a man driven by loyalty, and she is a woman with secrets that could jeopardize Bruce's chance to reclaim his throne. As the battle for king and country sounds across the shores, will Ellie's love be enough to finally tame the legend known as the Hawk?"--Page 4 of cover
