Lady Caetlin has a secret—keeping her from leaving the safe confines of the castle. When her home is threatened by seafarers from the West, news of their savage and brutish ways spread across the kingdom and as war breaks out, Caetlin is left defenceless.
Randel’s clan are forced to cross the seas in search of new land, and although they go in peace, they meet hostility the moment they reach the shores. Randel is commissioned to take Caetlin hostage but there is one thing he cannot not foresee—falling in love with the lady.
As Randel and Caetlin are thrust together in extraordinary circumstances, they soon discover that all is not as it seems, and in their pursuit for truth they may find the only ones they can trust are each other.
