Two outcasts come together . . . and find the gift of love . . .

1387 A.D. – As a royal guardsmen to King Richard II, Sir Hal de Montfort places duty above all else. When a royal rebellion threatens the king’s power, Hal is caught up in a political game and winds up losing everything dear to him. Broken in spirit and stripped of all knightly possessions, he begins the long journey to Kinwick, his parents’ home.

Because Lady Elinor Swan wasn’t the expected male heir, her unforgiving father exiles her from Whitley after her mother dies in childbirth. Elinor is taken in by the estate’s falconer and spends years training to be a falconer herself. She rescues Hal when he is injured by highwaymen. As he heals physically and she teaches him about working with raptors, Hal regains his confidence and becomes a better man than the charming, lighthearted knight of the royal court he’d once been.

Will Elinor learn how to fit into a world she’s never been a part of—especially after she fears she will be blamed for the death of a noblewoman who bore her a grudge?

Join Hal and Elinor as they learn about each other and what counts most in life.


Lady Elinore Swan was banished from her family home as a child.  The estate falconer took her in and taught her all he knew.  Her memories of her early childhood remain and ensure she has no confidence in herself. 
Sir Hal de Montfort finds himself on the wrong side when the young King Richard faces rebellion.  Feeling shamed and being completely unarmed he begins the long walk home. 
An emotional story about a brave and independent young woman making the most of a very hard life.  Our hero comes from a large loving family , and he knows exactly what he had found. 
This is a book easily read on it's own but it's linked through family ties to the rest of this great series.  Once you read one of the books you will be totally hooked and want to read the rest. 
I have loved every one of them.
