William of Normandy has returned home in triumph, fresh from defeating King Harold at the Battle of Hastings. He has been forced to bring with him a band of potentially treacherous English nobles, whom he cannot trust to leave behind.
Waltheof of Huntingdon is one such man, but rebellion couldn't be further form him mind. From the moment he catches sight of Judith, the daughter of the King William's formidable sister, he knows he has found his future wife and it is clear the attraction is mutual.
But love has little do to with marriage in medieval Europe, and it is up to William to decide if the match should go ahead. After all, would a match between a Saxon Earl and Norman Lady be without complications?
