Sorley the Hawk is the king’s man, but he has a private quest to uncover his heritage. When a beautiful Highland woman sneaks into his room with an unusual proposal, he can’t help but listen. Lady Mirabelle MacLaren asks Sorley to deflower her, knowing that he and her betrothed are enemies and that this would negate her marriage. Sorley knows Mirabelle from childhood, but has kept his distance since he is one of the king’s bastards and she a lady. It is inevitable their childhood passions are rekindled, but Sorley still fears he cannot wed a true lady until some surprising truths are revealed. (FOREVER, May, 357 pp., $8.00)
