He’s her enemy…

…and she must not fall for him!

When her mistress is claimed as an enemy knight’s betrothed, handmaiden Aelfhild knows it would be too dangerous for her lady; she must go in her place. But there’s more to the scarred knight than she first thought—she isn’t expecting to fall for him! As the line between friend and enemy blurs, Aelfhild realizes she might be protecting her mistress, but not her heart…


Falling for the wrong knight! The beginning of the story is a tad confusing, as is trying to follow who is being talked about on the trip because of the swtich-a-roo but once you get the characters and setting down pat, it’s a very enjoyable book! The characters are drawn to each other even though they think they’re each someone else, so watching them try to fight the temptation of their attraction is entertaining. I enjoyed seeing what came of all four of them in the end!

Feisty handmaiden Aelfhild isn’t willing to let her friend Lady Sigrun be at the mercy of an enemy Knight even though he tells a story of her mother promoting their marriage. She steps forward and takes her place on the long journey home, but never expects to start falling for the scarred man herself!

When Guilherm FitzLannion is sent to claim the betrothed bride of his lord Gilbert du Rospez, he never expects to encounter such an outspoken lady. He doesn’t understand why her companion is so meek while she is the one to step forth and lead the charge when they face danger along the way, but he finds himself falling for her even though she’s promised to his best friend!
