"I will wed only my one true love " declared Princess Brianna despite King Henry's decree that she marry one of the sons of the man who had conquered her family's castle.So Brianna issued a seemingly impossible challenge: He who returned with a gift that made her laugh would win her hand.And thus began the bride quest of the three brothers Fitzgavin. . . .
Burke and Rowan, knights both, set out at her command.Only Luc remained, refusing to indulge the whims of the glorious Irish princess.Even Brianna's legendary beauty could not tempt him--until she invaded his senses ...and his soul.But Luc thought a princess had no place in the life of a battle-weary warrior who vowed to lay down his sword forever--until he was forced to take up arms to protect the fair maiden who had seized his heart by divine right.
