From the back of the book:

Assaulted and injured by her abusive and murderous husband Ryle, Gisela Anne Balewyne flees with her small son, Ewan.  Hiding from Ryle, and working as a tailor in the town of Clovebury, Gisela struggles to save enough money to move north and start a new life.  With her latest commission from rich French merchant Crenardieu—sewing garments from luxurious blue silk—she will finally be able to leave and be free of Ryle forever.  All goes well until Dominic de Terre, back several years from the Crusade, accepts his lord de Lanceau's mission to find out who has stolen de Lanceau's cloth shipment, worth a fortune.

For Dominic is the father of her son, although he does not know it.  And although they discover neither her love, nor his, has ever died, she still cannot tell him the truth.  Not yet.  Tragically, however, Gisela waits too long.

Dominic discovers not only that Gisela has lied to him about the stolen silks, and has concealed them in her shop, he learns Ewan is his illegitimate son.  She has betrayed his trust not once, but twice, and Gisela expects him to arrest her and take Ewan away.

Crenardieu's thugs, however, reach Dominic first, and Gisela realizes there is only one way to save his life.  She must go to de Lanceau, admit her crimes, and convince him to let her help him save Dominic.  And then she must confront Ryle, the dragon of her nightmares . . .

From the back of the book:

 

The Treasure of Love . . .

 

Facing the tall, brooding rider by the stormy lakeshore, Lady Faye Rivellaux clings to her goal--to rescue the kidnapped child she vowed to protect.  At all costs, she must win back the little girl she loves as her own.  When the stranger demands a ransom she can never pay, Faye offers him instead her one last hope--a gold cup.

 

Brant Meslarches is stunned to see the chalice.  Worth a fortune, it's proof a lost cache of wealth from the legendary Celtic King Arthur does exist, as Brant's murdered brother believed.  Brant can't return the little girl to the lady whose desperate beauty captivates him.  Yet, now that he's seen Lady Faye, he can't let her escape his grasp; she is the key to his only means of redemption.

 

The last thing Faye wants is an alliance with a scarred knight tormented by secrets.  But, she has no other way to rescue the child.  Risking all, she joins Brant's quest.  And finds some things are more valuable than gold.

From the back of the book:

 

Aldwin Treynarde, a squire who shot Lord Geoffrey de Lanceau with a crossbow bolt after being deceived by Baron Sedgewick, is ordered to retrieve a stolen ruby pendant before it falls into the baron and Veronique’s hands.  Haunted by his guilt over being manipulated by the baron years ago, Aldwin wants to prove his worth to his lord.  If he excels in his duty, he might even be awarded knighthood. Such an honor would also help redeem himself to his respected parents who, ashamed by his reckless near-murder of de Lanceau, told him never to return home.

 

Lady Leona Ransley, in an effort to help her depressed father, only wants to hand over the pendant, collect the reward, and vanish.  When she arranges a meeting in a seedy tavern, she never expected to face Aldwin, who almost caused her death twelve years ago when they disturbed a bee’s nest during a childhood game.  Although Aldwin doesn’t recognize her, he’s reminded of Leona and is haunted by his belief that she died from the bee stings from that day twelve years prior.  Believing that the woman before him is a courtesan and has information on the conspirators’ whereabouts, he takes Leona hostage and
spirits her away, meaning to deliver her and the pendant to de Lanceau.

 

She, however, fights him at every chance.  He desires his warrior captive more than any noble woman he has ever met, and when hediscovers who she really is, he knows he has one last chance to protect his lady’s life.  Only by resolving what happened between them and by fighting side by side can Aldwin and Leona defeat the conspirators and surrender to their greatest temptation—love.
