THE DARK KNIGHT
Genre: Historical Romance
Gypsy horsemaster Sandor Matskella is appalled that he must take over for his uncle, King Edward's executioner, when his uncle takes ill and must execute a troublesome nun at Hawksnest Castle.
But Sandor soon discovers the "old" nun is actually the lovely Lady Gastonia Cavandish, a woman who decided to devote herself to God because she couldn't find a man worthy of her.
Edward and his ministers wish to rid the country of anything Papist. By killing Tonia, they can reduce the influence of the powerful Cavandish family.
As their love grows together, they devise a plan to outsmart the ministers.
