Genre: Medieval Romance
266 A.D. – Chadwick “Chad” de Lohr, son of Daniel de Lohr (SHADOWMOOR) is a hero at the Battle of Evesham. Saving the hostage Henry III from Simon de Montfort, he is riding high on a wave of royal praise at the conclusion of the battle. But that favor with the king is short-lived.
Henry, once again in power after the death of de Montfort, is determined to rid his country of the de Montfort-supporting rebels once and for all. This includes a campaign of harassment against the nobles who supported de Montfort through the years, namely, the House of de Shera (THE LORDS OF THUNDER TRILOGY). The House of the de Lohr and the House of de Shera are linked by blood, and when Henry orders that a de Shera heiress be removed from Newington Priory and placed in Henry’s custody as a hostage to ensure the House of de Shera’s behavior, Chad races to Newington to remove his distant cousin from the abbey before Henry can take her hostage.
Chad’s noble act to save Alessandria de Shera is the first step in a chain of events that sees the House of de Lohr increasingly turned against the king. He is determined to take Alessandria back to Isenhall Castle where she can be protected by her warlord cousins, the LORDS OF THUNDER. It’s a race through England as Chad and Alessandria stay one step ahead of Henry’s men in their pursuit to capture her. Aided by Davyss de Winter (LESPADA) and Bose de Moray (THE GORGON), the journey of Chad and Alessandria takes them through life, death, great hardship, fear, and finally passion beyond what they could have ever imagined.
It’s an eventual showdown between Henry, the LORDS OF THUNDER, and the House of de Lohr once Chad and Alessandria are cornered. Will Henry finally claim Alessandria? Or will Chad ultimately defeat the man he once saved?

But his impatience didn’t last long. His mother, his sister, and Alessandria suddenly emerged from the knight quarters with de Russe and de Velt behind them, and Chad felt a sense of relief at the sight of her. That, and a distinct sense of pleasure; she was wearing a traveling outfit of dark green wool, durable and well made, clinging to a figure he didn’t know she had. Though petite, she had a narrow waist and flaring hips, quite alluring and shapely. In fact, he was rather shocked to realize she not only had an exquisite face but a body to match. Through the wet wool and darkness of their travels, he’d never had the chance to notice.
But he wasn’t the only one who noticed; his brothers as well as his cousins were riveted to the lady, seeing an enchantress emerge into their midst. The dark auburn hair was braided, draping over one shoulder, and she had a kerchief wrapped around her head, tucked behind her ears and tied at the nape of her neck to keep her hair from blowing about or becoming unruly. Veronica was trying to fix the billowing cloak, a cloak that was streaming behind Alessandria like a banner and allowing every man there a view of that marvelous figure.
The goddess was revealed.
