He arrived demanding that a debt be paid...
Sir Gavin the Bold appears one winter evening demanding payment for saving the life of Baron Clifton de Leraye. The knight claims that he is entitled to marry one of the lord’s three daughters. Except the claim is called into question, and the lord denies making any such agreement...
She sacrificed herself to pay the debt in full
Lady Estella de Leraye is resigned to the fact that as the eldest, she must carefully tend to the family’s honor so that her sisters will marry well and prosper. But with the arrival of the strange knight, that reputation is thrown into turmoil and her sisters’ futures are threatened.

Conflicted with her needs along with her sisters, she struggles to come to terms with her plight. And all the while, a blazing attraction to the handsome knight burns brighter with each passing moment. And yet despite his charm and allure, she knows that he is hiding something.
