Promised to the cloister, the free-spirited Lady Mercia returns home before her final vows for her sister Rowena’s wedding to a Welsh prince. But fate intervenes when she finds a badly wounded man washed up upon the shore.
Unable to resist his fevered pleas for her help, she hides him amongst the caves she played in as a child. And there, as she nurses the handsome stranger back to health, she discoverers a passion for him she cannot resist. Knowing she is promised to God and will never know the touch of man, Mercy gives in to her heart’s desire and her body’s craving.
On his way to his betrothed, Lady Rowena, Prince Rhodri of Dinefwr is shipwrecked and badly wounded, with no memory of who he is. But he does not care; an angel of Mercy has come to claim his mind, body, soul, and--soon--his heart.
Yet fate intervenes again when Rhodri regains his memory and realizes his one true love is the sister of his betrothed. Though honor bound to marry a woman he has never met, Rhodri’s heart belongs to Mercy.
Can Mercy and Rhodri find a way to be together without sacrificing their honor...?
This was a nice quick read that I found for free on Amazon. When I downloaded it I did not realize that it was part of a series, but that did not detract from the story line in my opinion since the author did a very good job of describing the characters and story line. This historical romance kind of reminds me of Cinderella with a few twists and turns. It was too short to get fully invested in the characters but had a good enough story line to keep me hooked for the duration of the book. The rest of the series will be going in my "to read if I have time" pile.
