In 1067 William the Conqueror and his Norman forces have invaded and conquered England, and William is now the new king. Britannia, a young Englishwoman, does not care who is king, she simply wants an end to all the fighting and killing. At twenty-six, she has given up hope of love and marriage and spends her days keeping house for her older brother, who is very cruel to her. Garek du Mor, a young Norman knight, has been given the manor where Brianna lives by King William. After Brianna prevents her brother from killing Garek, she is taken to the manor castle by Garek for her protection. Garek is troubled by his past and longs for forgiveness. Haunted by nightmares, he seems to be able to find peace only with Brianna. Meanwhile, Brianna, against her better judgement, finds herself developing feelings for Garek. But King William has arranged a political marriage for Garek and is determined that it will happen.
