Susan gives an overview of the book:

From the moment Briar Rose sets eyes on Lord Gareth Hawke 's magnificent Saxon face-his golden hair gleaming in the sunlight-she is captivated. She has found her knight-a loving partner to one day be lord of Briarwood, her ancestral home. In her innocence, she believes her father will consent to a marriage... to a man shunned by society and banned from the Church. In her naivete, she gives her heart completely to this rogue, whose bold kisses fill her with a magic desire she has never known. But Gareth is not only a social outcast, he is penniless... subject to temptations that crush Briar Rose's sweet dreams in devastating betrayal. Only after suffering the torments of lonely separation, dark suspicion, and cruel scheming by their enemies can they at last find the glorious fulfillment of love's most enduring promise.
