Four books set in the 14th century, in the middle of the Hundred Years War
Two people that should never have met, two souls looking for love.
After a series of traumatic deaths in his family, Ieuan thought he would never care about anything or anyone ever again but his meeting with his commander’s sister will force him to accept that his ability to love is not lost.
An orphan brought up by her controlling brother Roger, Blanche has always known her life is not her own but she craves for some independence. When she meets the forbidding Welshman she is incensed at his high-handed manner but her irritation quickly turns to desire.
When Roger announces that Blanche is to be betrothed to a nobleman twice her age, she decides to prove to herself that she has the freedom to make her own decisions. Her thoughts turn to the impudent archer who dared to look at her as if she was his for the taking. There will never be a better opportunity to thwart her brother’s plans – and indulge the wild part of her that she has kept hidden from him.
What was supposed to be a simple expression of her independence quickly turns into much more. Blanche discovers that her feelings for Ieuan run much deeper than she had anticipated.
But on the morning that the archers are to leave for war, Roger orders Blanche to put an end to her affair. If she doesn’t obey, he will ensure that Ieuan does not survive the campaign. Faced with such a terrible ultimatum Blanche has no choice but to end their relationship, reveal that she is engaged to be married – and keep silent about the baby she is carrying.
Devastated, Ieuan departs a broken man, certain he will never come back from France alive.
A year later he returns, unaware that Blanche has given birth to their daughter and there is only one thing on his mind.

They abduct her in order to use her and obtain the local lord’s support. Carwyn, the village farrier, has always hated nobles. After a callous knight made her pregnant, his mother was shunned by her family. His subsequent hard upbringing has nurtured a deep hatred towards the nobility and their immoral selfishness.

Will Carwyn manage to overcome his prejudice and accept that, as unlikely as it may be, this woman might be the one to fulfil his heart’s desire?
Will Ava be brave enough to turn her life inside out if the reward is a man who loves her?
