A man without a past…

Abandoned at a monastery as a young child, Alexander serves two masters—God and the fading memories of his past life—the one he never got to live. As he nears the day to take his vows, he’s sent on a last sojourn into the real world, but what begins as a test of faith becomes a journey to manhood.

And a woman who doesn’t know her own heart…

Born from the line of two kings, Lady Sibylla Mac William is abandoned by her sire as a child and then ruled illegitimate. Though she lives a happy life under her uncle’s protection, Sibylla craves something more, but never could she imagine losing her heart to the would-be monk who unexpectedly arrives to tutor her brother.

Together, they will forge the future of a kingdom…

When dark secrets from the past come to light, Alex and Sibylla’s fates become inextricably entwined. Will Alex choose the safe and secure path he knows, or will he reject holy orders to embrace his true destiny… and the woman he loves?


Alexander is quite comfortable with his life in the monastery surrounded by books.  However before he takes his vows he is sent to be a tutor.  There is a reason he has been sent to that particular place that he will soon discover.  His ancestry and that of the people he is working for will cause them all a great deal of problems. 
Lady Sibylla and her brother have the blood of two kings running through them,  but because they have been declared illegitimate their claim to the throne of Scotland can never be. 
Her brother carries a grudge about it that could see them all in great danger. 
Set in a complicated part of Scottish history this is the start of a series that needs to be read in order.  We have a very unlikely hero and a headstrong heroine.  Both will put their lives on the line for those they love.  Political intrigue and self serving villains make this an exciting read. 
I can't wait to read the rest in the series.
