This is the beginning of Sherrie's The Brotherhood of the Sword Series.. another series she has left for the time being. She has said that she plans to go back to it.. just so many ideas are bouncing around in her head she has to write what steps up.. I hope these hunky crusaders come back to the front really really soon
Setting: Medieval England
All her life, Emily has had one dream–to be a wife and mother. Unfortunately, her father has other plans for her future. But when her father crosses one of the most powerful men in England, King Henry II decides the best way to keep peace is to hand her over as a political hostage to Draven, Earl of Ravenswood. Knowing this is her only chance to catch a husband, she immediately sets her cap for the most eligible bachelor in Christendom.
Draven has known no kindness. Bred to be invincible, he has lived his life on the battlefield, a dedicated servant to the crown. Now he has sworn to Henry he will place no hand on Emily in anger or in lust. If only the lady would give him peace. Instead, she pursues him relentlessly with the ridiculous notion to make him her husband. But marriage is something he can never do, not with the family curse that taints his blood.
