The second book in the Knight Trilogy follows Jesse and Alex's twin sons as they embark on a tangled journey of intrigue and deception.
When Emma Spenser's sister is murdered, Emma believes Jamie Harcourt, her sister's one-time lover, is the killer. When he is exonerated of the crime, Emma is determined to prove his guilt. Masquerading as a minstrel, she enters Jamie's home and kidnaps him, holding him prisoner until he turns the tables on his captor.
Jamie is involved in a complex scheme, and Emma cannot come between him and his mission. Claiming she is his betrothed, Jamie brings Emma to his home in Cornwall and straight into the middle of a dangerous gambit.
Slowly Emma realizes Jamie could never be a killer. He may be tormented by the ghosts of his past, but she sees the goodness in his soul and she's determined to make Jamie realize this as well, even more so after his twin brother, Hugh, arrives.
Caught between the brothers, her loyalty put to the test, Emma will do whatever she must to save Jamie from being caught by his enemy, even though it means placing her life and his plan in jeopardy.
KNIGHTS DIVIDED is a complex tale of brothers' loyalty, honor, jealousy and hatred. Suzanne Barclay merges this with exciting historical details and though the pace is not as quick as her other novels, readers will still be compelled to keep reading until the mystery is solved.
