Left a bequest by a woman with rare psychic powers, Eada of Pevensey suddenly finds herself in possession of a box containing a mysterious document. . .and something even more extraordinary: the gift of second sight. Now she can actually "see" her chilling fate: a Norman invader with sea-dark eyes riding across the fields to claim her lands. . .and her love.
A reluctant soldier for William the Conquerer, Drogo de Toulon seizes the Pevensey lands as a right of conquest. . .and meets a woman who defies him at every turn--and arouses uncontrollable desire. Yet now, as war rages across a divided England, the two lovers must find the bond that joins body and soul. . .as they chart a course through battle and betrayal that could break their hearts--or seal their passion for all time. . .
