Lord Jarrad steals his bride from her home using lies and the lure of a safe haven. His bride’s vow of perfect obedience is the priest’s idea, a way to keep her docile. As if Morag’s daughter could ever be tamed.
When we first meet Sarah Walden she is a young girl struggling to find a way to be a proper lady. She is close with her family and wants nothing more than to bring them honor. She has no idea what fate has in store for her or how difficult her life is going to become.
Sarah tends to be more outspoken than women of this age are permitted to be.
