Protected by the Warrior

When Clara became a midwife, she vowed to preserve life above all. She'll keep that vow, even if it means defying a Norman baron by hiding a Saxon slave and her child. Yet when the ruthless lord threatens Clara's village - and her life - she's forced to rely on another Norman to keep her safe.

Kenneth D'Entremont is a soldier, one who takes lives instead of healing them. Clara despairs of finding any common ground with him. But when he begins guarding her, she learns to see him in a new light. His care and compassion make her feel safe...even loved. Can she bring herself to put her secrets, and her heart, under the protection of the warrior?
