A DARK LORD . . .
Few secrets are harder to keep than witchcraft—but is the ancient knowledge the source of Lady Eldswythe’s mysterious gift for healing horses? She is summoned to tend the prize steeds of the dark and solitary Sir Robert Breton, a rival of her family’s house. The last thing Eldswythe wants is to be near a man her heart distrusts--and desires. His smoldering eyes could make her forget she is betrothed. And, oh! How he rides a horse…
A LADY FAIR . . .
Gallantly defending her through a violent siege and a harrowing escape, Robert comes to believe in her strange powers, for he knows only too well that he has fallen under her spell. The spirited and sensual Eldswythe has bewitched his stony heart with wondrous ease . .

SWEETER THAN WINE
Through the darkness in the tent, Robert saw the figure of a woman standing in the sun. Tall and slim, dressed in a well-fitted gown of lapis blue, she had her back to him, but she stood apart from her guard. She’d brought no maid with her, and by the strength in her shoulders and by the way she held her veiless head, she was confident and strong-minded. And she was young. Her hair, dark and as shiny as polished jet, fell in a loose braid below her hips. She turned her head to see his horses, though she didn’t seem to realize he was watching.
Robert took a deep breath. God’s bones. She was not at all what he’d expected. She was a beauty with fair skin, lips the color of new wine, and dark, intelligent eyes. Eyes that drew him in and made him wonder what magic she possessed . . .
