A proud maiden, she vowed never to love again... until he rode back into her life.

"I come in search of a bride."

Once upon a time, the legendary knight, Burke Fitzgavin, galloped into Kiltorren Castle and fell in love with Alys, the lord's orphaned niece.  But her uncle was determined that Burke marry one of his homely daughters instead.  Through tricks and lies, Burke was sent away, believing that Alys wanted nothing of his heart.

Pledged to a Bride Quest, Burke has vowed not to return home until he finds his long-lost love.  He returns to Kiltorren to discover that the fiery young innocent has become a woman, a servant on her uncle's estate.  Paying penance for Burke's long-ago embrace, she wants nothing to do with him.  Burke knows he must earn her trust again.  Even as he slowly rekindles her desire, Alys's family attempts to thwart their romance--determined that Alys should not marry before her cousins do.  But Burke is a warrior and this battle to win the hand and the heart of his one true love will be his greatest challenge ever. . . .

Watch for The Heiress, the crowning novel in the sumptuous Bride Quest trilogy of the three brothers Fitzgavin, which began with The Princess.
