In the middle thirteenth century, Lionheart, as a good loyal soldier, follows orders to lead his men on an assault of the Welsh stronghold Cragdon Castle. Leading the opposition is a slim young warrior who looks too young to shave, but shows courage, skill, and audaciousnes before realizing the impossibility of the task at defending the keep. Lionheart plans to capture the White Knight, but as he and his men rush into the castle, his elusive foe is gone.

Instead of a warrior ready to duel to the death, the beautiful Vanora greets Lionheart. It is unbelievable to this warrior who has conquered many an enemy on the battlefield that he loses his renowned calm and wants Vanora in his bed. To have her means to marry her, which both reluctantly accept. However, he may be under her spell, but using his brain he knows she hides something from him.

The theme of the beastly male who knows not of love and the intrepid female willing to take up arms for a worthy cause has starred as the theme of many a romance novel. Connie Mason uses that motif to provide her myriad of fans with a delightfully battle of wits, loyalty, and ardor through two cherished lead protagonists. The medieval era story line never slows down as LIONHEART and Vanora struggle between an attraction loyalty growing into love and conflicting patriotism.
