Daphne Foliot has always known she'll be married off to a man who, like her, descended from one of King Arthur's fabled knights. That doesn't mean she wants to be, even if it is her beloved father's wish. Raised without a mother, she owes everything to the man who encouraged and funded her education and supports her dream of becoming the first female member of the Order of the Round Table. But when she suspects her chosen husband is a traitor to the Order, she plans to expose his treachery, regardless of their extraordinary mutual attraction. Heir to the thirteen treasures of Britain, Gideon Kersey vows to do anything to protect his family's legacy from a secret society bent on exploiting the items for personal gain, including marry a woman he doesn't love. Except she ignites a passion he was certain died with his first wife, and when the truth behind the Order's objectives threatens everything Daphne knows, Gideon must fight to save her--and any future they hope to share.
