have seized Alethorpe and it's people. Rohan plans to make
Isabel of Alethorpe his greatest conquest. Isabel agrees to

betrothed wants her back, Rohan's brother Henri wants
whatever Rohan has, and raiders are pillaging the
surrounding villages. Between deceit and danger lies true
love but will Rohan and Isabel be able to find it?
Master of Surrender is a
