Book 1: Lords of Conquest, The Perigueux Family
Forced to wed a notoriously brutal Norman knight after her Saxon husband falls at Hastings, Faithe of Hauekleah vows that the enemy invader will never have her heart. But she hasn’t counted on her riot of conflicting emotions when Luke de Perigueux, the infamous “Black Dragon,” takes her in his arms. Not only does he have a reputation for savage fury on the battlefield–fury he unleashed against her own people not long ago–but it soon becomes apparent that her lord husband is hiding a dark and terrible secret.
