From bestselling author Rexanne Becnel, this classic romance is the beguiling tale of two souls cast together by fate. Like all her historical novels, The Rose of Blacksword speaks to a love that resonates throughout the ages. Lady Rosalynde of Stanwood has the power to entice men to deeds of reckless daring. And none is so rash and bold as the condemned outlaw known as Blacksword. In return for safe escort to her ancestral castle, Rosalynde is forced to marry the rogue, never dreaming that holy wedlock will fan the flames of unholy desire.
Wielder of the coveted Blacksword, with the fate of his noble name resting on his massive shoulders, Sir Aric of Wycliffe lives to bring death to his treacherous nemesis—until his heart is bested by the enchanting maiden who saved him from the hangman’s noose. Bound together by ancient custom, the brazen knight demands nothing less than Rose’s total surrender. But even as revenge and honor war within him, he is undone by the most seductive conqueror of all: wild, irresistible love.
