A novel by

An exciting historical romance series that follows the fates of three Templar knights exiled to Scotland after the nationwide arrest of their brethren that took place in France on Friday 13th October, 1307.

Six months have passed since Gabriel escaped the persecution in France and fled, with two of his brothers-in-arms, to Scotland. The upheaval has not been easy for him. A pious and disciplined man, Gabriel now finds himself facing a chaotic and uncertain future. Unable to reconcile all that has happened, he decides to return to his native England, lay down his sword, and take holy vows at Furness Abbey.
But returning to the land of his birth is not without risks. His destination lies within the border region of Scotland and England, an area long cursed with conflict. Not only that, the Templars in England are now also facing persecution.
Then there's Brianna, the young woman he discovers in the forest along with her rather unusual companion. For the first time in many years, Gabriel finds himself seriously tempted by the allure of a female. Throw in an unsolved mystery from the past, along with its astounding resolution, and Gabriel's life becomes even more complicated!
Will he adhere to his original plans? Or will temptation and conflict undermine his objective?
