Lady Grace Willoughby defies her father’s orders to marry Sir William de Tracy and escapes with a friend.

She prays for a knight to rescue her.
Excommunicated and outcast for a horrible crime in his past, Sir William de Tracy searches for forgiveness. Marriage has never crossed his mind until Lord Willoughby commissions him to retrieve his fleeing daughter and honor the dying wish of his father by marrying Grace.
But things are not as they seem. And when an assassin tries to kill Grace, William must choose between his soul and the woman he has come to love. Can William and Grace overcome their past and find the redemption and love both are so desperately seeking?
Review: Grace Willoughby's father ordered her to marry Sir Wiliam de Tracy - but she refuses, and runs away with a friend. Sir William de Tracy isn't a very desirable man: he was excommunicated and outcast for a horrible crime in his past, and as such, Grace doesn't see him as the kind of knight she was to marry.
Sir William de Tracy on the other hand, is desperate for forgiveness. As he's sent to retrieve Grace, and someone tries to assassinate her, he must choose between his soul and Grace, the woman he has come to love.
I loved William. He was such a lost soul, and so desperate to be loved. He and Grace made an interesting couple. I wasn't too fond of Grace at first, but I started to like her as I got to know her better.
