p>Why would King Edward I of England order a marriage between his most true and perfect knight and a woman suspected of treason?
Baron Haven De Sessions knows a hundred reasons not to marry the widow Dreyford. She is entirely too independent, and a suspected traitor. Worst of all, she’d been married to his best friend—a man Haven arrested for plotting against the king. Haven believes the treacherous widow should have been the one to lose her head, not his dearest friend. Now, an oath to that same friend forces Haven to protect a woman he does not want and cannot trust.
Genvieve Dreyford has her own reasons not to marry De Sessions. She’s been married and didn’t like the experience one bit. The man is far too handsome, and his reputation as the king’s most true and perfect knight has swelled the baron’s head. Worst of all, Gennie believes he betrayed his friendship with her husband to seek favor with the English king. Now, because of the Baron, Gennie has lost her home, her title and nearly everything she held dear. How can she pledge herself to a man she fears and mistrusts?
Molded in the Arthurian tradition, Haven is a man to whom duty, honor and loyalty mean everything. Gennie is the embodiment of the transformed lady from medieval legend, a woman whose true worth hides beneath a web of suspicion and misperceptions. Set in 1282, against the backdrop of England’s war with Wales, A True and Perfect Knight is a tale of conflict and distrust forged by honor into a bond of love stronger than any kingdom on earth.
