Catrin Gryffin de Warrenne is chasing after her brother in law who has taken off with her son, when her horse goes lame. Lucky for her, there is a carriage near. Because it's the only thing she can do, she steals the carriage to continue the pursuit of her son.
Sir Orion Wherlocke can't believe that someone stole his carriage which happened to have his son in it. Even knowing who took it and that she promises to bring it back, he can't leave his son in the hands of a stranger.
Giles, Orion's son, befriended Catrin when they stopped to rest the horses and when Orion catches up with them conveniences them to help Catrin get back her son.
Orion knows that Catrin is not someone to have an affair with and then leave, so when he finds himself attracted to her he has to decide if he wants to give up his bachelor ways. Is he willing to do that for a once in a lifetime love?
There is so much that I love about this story, but I don't want to give away too much! I loved Orion and Catrin together. Howell does a masterful job with the secondary characters, several of whom we've met in previous stories. They add so much to the rest of the story and it just wouldn't be complete without them.
If you've not read the rest of the books in the series, I recommend reading them first. It's not a necessity to do so, but you will enjoy the story a lot more in doing so.
