Nothing like a little medieval romance to get you ready for Valentine's day, right!?
Brian put his long, toned arm around her shoulders.
Moira was startled by his touch, not because she wasn't expecting it, but because of the way it made her feel. She felt a jolt of adrenaline at his gentle yet firm touch. She couldn't keep her head clear with his body so close to her side. Her breathing became labored; she had to force herself to breathe. She tripped over her own feet and almost fell to the ground. Brian caught her, his brow furrowed in concern.
What’s wrong with me? she thought, feeling her face flush with heat. That was really peculiar. I must be tired from my walk here, she decided.
Mistreated for years, orphaned Moira dreams of building a new life in the royal city. Little does she know that her dreams will cost more than just her own fate. This medieval tale of romance, mistaken identities, and long-sought redemption will change how you feel about villains and heroines, loss and love.
