Ramsay Douglas feels all Kennedy women are whores and rather than offering marriage to Valentina, insults her with a handfasting. After ravishing her the first night they are together, he realizes that she has had less experience with men than he first thought and his feelings for her change. He begins to fall in love. Valentina, however, continues her vengeful quest to hurt him. In the midst of this drama, new clues in a fifteen year old murder surface and Tina begins to fear Ramsay as well as despise him.
Virginia Henley packs historical fact, smoldering sex, hot-blooded characters and humor on 500 + pages between two covers.
