As the defeated Saxons continue to chafe against the yoke of Norman rule, Rhiannyn of Etcheverry finds herself at the center of a rebellion when the conqueror she refuses to wed dies in her arms--cursing her never to know the love of a man or the blessing of children. Certain only her silence can save her people from retaliation, she holds close the dark truth about his death. But when his avenging brother saves her life, she discovers another side to the celebrated warrior of Hastings--one that will test her loyalties and beliefs. And expose the innocent heart beneath her Saxon pride.UNFORGIVEN~ Renouncing his holy vows, Maxen Pendery pledges to discover who murdered his brother--even at the cost of the soul he has wrestled to save since thrusting his sword in the blood-soaked soil of Hastings and walking away. But when he has Rhiannyn of Etcheverry at his mercy, she continues to protect the rebel leader to whom she was once betrothed. Though breathtakingly lovely, not once does she use her wiles to battle Maxen, only her sharp tongue, strong will, and a selflessness that makes something unexpected stir his ignoble heart, leaving him torn between duty and longing. Will this cursed beauty be the death of him? Or might she be his redemption?

USA Today Bestselling author Tamara Leigh returns with a tale of betrayal, vengeance, and forbidden longing in Lady Undaunted, her latest historical romance set in medieval England. BETRAYED Declared illegitimate and denied his inheritance, Sir Liam Fawke has given six years of his life in service to his younger brother for the promise of being named heir to the Barony of Ashlingford. But when he is summoned to his brother's deathbed, he learns his treacherous kin has secretly wed and fathered a son. Vowing to claim what is rightfully his, Liam contests his nephew's succession. And not only finds himself at dangerous odds with the boy's lovely, spirited mother, but attracted to one who is forbidden him-one whose son is the means by which he could twice lose all. FORBIDDEN Three years ago, Lady Joslyn struck a desperate bargain to wed a nobleman and provide him with an heir. Now widowed, she must protect her young son from her husband's vengeful brother who will stop at nothing-including murder-to take what does not belong to him. But when she seeks an audience with the king to secure her son's inheritance, she discovers Sir Liam may have the stronger claim and that the truth of him could make lies of all she was led to believe. More unsettling, she is drawn to the man beneath the anger who can never forgive her for the part she played in his brother's deception-nor forget to whom she first belonged.
