THE VIRTUOUS KNIGHT by MARGO MAGUIRE
One thought consumed her: escape! Lucy Kendal would do
anything to leave the convent she'd called home since
girlhood. But never had she dreamed the world contained
such danger — and such desire — as she'd experienced
firsthand. Though Sir Alexander Breton had rescued her
countless times, he also stirred in her a sense of
wildness — something he was honor bound never to fulfill!
One emotion compelled him: grief! Widowed knight Alexander
Breton had gone crusading to retreat from sorrow. Indeed,
he was to take monastic vows after fulfilling a sacred
quest for a dying friend. But fate decreed he would instead
find Lucy Kendal, the brave, beauteous innocent, who needed
protection...and needed him!
The story of Alexander Breton, a widowed knight who
intends to take his monastic vows as soon as he fulfills a
sacred quest for a dying friend. But he meets up with Lucy
Kendal, a young woman who has spent most of her life in a
convent. Lucy has no intention of remaining in the nunnery,
goes off on a perilous quest of her own.
