ONCE A KNIGHT
Lady Alisoun of Green Cross needs a hero and only the legendary mercenary knight, Sir David of Radcliffe, will do. Once considered the king's greatest champion, David is down on his luck when Lady Alisoun hires him as her bodyguard.
Fiercely independent and determined to keep her home and her people safe without marrying again, Lady Alisoun brings David to Green Cross as her savior. Though he sees little danger to Alisoun, David accepts his new position and takes on the task of training the castle's squires and organizing her small band of knights.
David has no idea that Alisoun is hiding a dangerous secret and that he will once again find himself challenged, not only in battle, but by the very passion that grows between the once mighty warrior and the strong-willed lady.
