Forbidden fruit always tastes the sweetest…
Elise keeps her cards close to her chest. Few people know that she’s also Blanchefleur le Fay, the celebrated singer. But she has an even greater secret... Her baby daughter is the result of a brief but intense affair with Gawain, Count of Meaux.
Duty-bound to marry, Gawain is back in Troyes to meet his bride. So why can’t he stop thinking about the sweet silver-voiced girl he met the last time he was there? And when he finds his mistress again Gawain must choose between duty...and forbidden desire.
