From USA Today bestselling author Glynnis Campbell...A damaged knight seeks refuge as a man of the church, but a beautiful healer from his past challenges his vow of silence and reawakens his passions.

Raised in the shadow of his warrior brothers, Sir Garth de Ware has retreated to a life of peace in the Church, seeking refuge from the unbridled desire that nearly destroyed him as a youth. But a beautiful healer from his past—newly widowed Lady Cynthia le Wyte—is not about to let the daring hero she remembers brood away in a monastery.

And ultimately, Garth is forced to choose between his holy calling and the calling of his heart.
