The illegitimate son of an unknown English nobleman embarks on his final mission as a mercenary for the lord who rules him--to rescue the lord's daughter from her abusive marriage. But a violent robbery occurs leaving the mercenary with a broken leg before he can accomplish his task. Stranded in London, he takes refuge in the home of a lovely young widow, and finds himself fascinated by her strengths and vulnerabilities. But will the widow, whose own past is shrouded by fear and shame, permit herself to embrace the love the former soldier has to offer?
