Sworn to protect the crown, a Knight of the Swan must never surrender—not even to love . . .England, 1415. Ordered never to leave the lonely tower on her family estate, Lady Clarice Margrave is suddenly set free when her home is plundered. Now she is determined to discover the truth behind her father’s alleged treason. But an act of daring only propels her into a new prison, with the very knight who destroyed her home as her keeper. Sir Ranulf, Lord of Sedgewic, is ruthless in his inquisition, though there is a searing tenderness in his touch. Is it possible her bold jailor is the Red Wolf of whom her father spoke—and the one man she might be able to trust?As a knight, Ranulf never questions his troth, but his beautiful prisoner stirs his heart and mind like no other. Clarice is achingly vulnerable—and extremely closed-mouth about her possible ties to the plot against the king. Duty demands he keep his distance, though he yearns to take her to his bed and adore her until he discovers what lies within her heart. And he would—if he weren’t in danger of losing his own . . .

Historical and contemporary romance author, C.C. Wiley, is a farm girl at heart and now lives in Utah. She tried the city life but soon discovered she likes wide-open spaces, rolling hills, fresh air, blue skies, and a little quiet. It just feels right. Growing up on a farm in Indiana she learned to escape the never-ending chores by slipping off to the barn or the fields and settle into a book that would take her away. Before long, she started creating her own stories to keep herself entertained. Eventually, adult responsibilities took over. She put her storytelling away for a while and kept the dream of becoming an author a secret. Although C.C. eventually moved away from the farm in Indiana, her love of reading never waned. “I’m told I’d even read encyclopedias when I was a kid. I wish I had retained all that knowledge. Imagine my joy when my memory engages and something from some deep dark place from years gone by actually pops in my head.” Despite her eclectic tastes, when given a choice, she prefers a yummy, well-written, historical or contemporary romance that is chock-full of hope, love and a Happy Ever After. C.C. states that one of the wisest steps she took as a writer with a dream was to join the Romance Writers of America. Soon after joining that organization, she began the arduous task of learning all she could about writing a story. Those lessons continue every day. She believes there are wonderful courageous characters waiting for someone to tell their story. It’s her hope that each adventurous romance she writes will touch the reader and carry them away to another place and time, where hopes and dreams abound. Her dream is just getting started. So lift a glass, if you will. “To hopes and dreams, and the possibilities of it all!” CHEERS!
