Summary

When a beautiful Welsh loyalist is taken prisoner by her English enemy, she must make an impossible choice between loyalty and love   Forced to live under the yoke of the hated English, Rhonwen ap Tomas feels like a rabbit caught in a snare. When she catches sight of the devilishly handsome English knight whose life she once saved, her only desire is to kill him. But her arrow misses its mark and Jasper FitzHugh vows that although they are enemies now, one day they will be lovers.   For ten years, Jasper fought in the long shadow of his warrior brother, Rand, who claimed this remote corner of northern Wales for England and crowned himself lord of Rosecliffe Castle. Now Jasper must safeguard Rand’s wife and children and find a way to soothe the restlessness in his soul. His near-fatal encounter with the wild creature from his childhood—now a ravishing beauty bent on avenging her Welsh brethren—only fuels his hunger to possess her.   When circumstances and a dangerous enemy conspire to make Rhonwen Jasper’s prisoner, passion flares hotly between captive and captor, drawing them to a destiny neither could ever have imagined.  The Knight of Rosecliffe is the 2nd book in the Rosecliffe Trilogy, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    On Aunt Mildred’s death, a destitute, angry and hurt Solita travels to England to confront her errant Guardian, now Duke of Calverleigh, who had vowed to care for her but apparently neglected his duty for ten long years.
    It is true, he had forgotten her – largely thanks to his all-consuming infatuation with a beautiful Russian Princess. The chastened Duke determines to take Solita under his protective wing – and, as his charm and kindness dissolve her resentment, Solita’s acute intuition and talent for language soon expose the wicked Princess’s plot to overthrow the British Raj in India. 
    In this well woven tale of intrigue, Solita and her Guardian are both in mortal danger – and when she saves the Duke’s life, not once but twice, he sees this innocent young beauty in a Heavenly new light.
