Susannah Tyrell does not want to marry as her father wishes her to, so she runs from home hoping to go to court to win the man that she does want. Unfortunately fate has other plans for her when she is found alone in the woods and taken captive.
Hugh Beaufort wants Susannah, but since she is the SIL to his best friend, he turns his attentions elsewhere. That is until he is sent to find her when she disappears. Alone and in high passions from their run from the enemy, they give into their feelings.
Is their more to this attraction than mere lust?
I tried to get into this story, but I really didn't like Susannah at all. She came off as a spoiled noblewoman and often acted like a brat. I did however like Hugh and wish he had been paired with someone else.
I really enjoyed the first book in the series, but this one didn't cut it for me...
