Mercenary knight Payne Dunbyer has one last task to undertake before he collects his money from the baron who has hired him-abduct the baron’s former betrothed and bring her to marry the man against the king’s wishes. How much trouble can one little woman be? A great deal when he takes the wrong one.
Lady Elfreda has plans for her life, and being taken captive isn’t one of them. Forced to accompany Payne across England, she is eager to return to her home. But what happens when desires change and suddenly the future she has planned isn’t the one she’s sure she wants? And what trouble does the Black Knight hold for Elf and Payne?
