With her father murdered and her home burned, Alyx Blackett flees to the woods -- and finds sanctuary in the camp of Raine Montgomery, a nobleman outlawed by the king's harsh decree. There she hides her beauty in the guise of a boy, and her sorrow in her work as Montgomery's squire. But how long can such loveliness remain hidden? How long can such a gallant man's desires be blind? Soon -- even as a blood feud rages between the Montgomerys and the Chatworths -- one woman's love will inflame a hero's passion, inspire a king's pity, and raise a song of praise in every English heart.
