at her family's cruel hands. But she suffers the ultimate
humiliation when her father kidnaps Sir Miles Rushden, a
neighboring nobleman, and forces him to marry her at
But Miles Rushden intends to secure a high place for
himself among England's royal circle and he will not marry
some wench of low birth. He never expected to see Heloise

she had worked her way into Buckingham's household. She
seems to have charmed everyone around her, and he is
certain that she has cast a spell over him...else why is
he finding himself so drawn to his lovely young bride?
