Chained Publisher's Summary

House Toustain and House Maignart, two royal houses once embroiled in a bloody feud, 30 years of peace now broken in an instant.

Sir Caden Maignart has been captured, beaten, locked in a dungeon, and wrongfully accused of kidnapping and oath-breaking. Determined to free himself and his men, and clear his besmirched name, Caden does not count on the willful nature of his captor, Lady Gwendolyn Toustain, the daughter of the man who was once his father's mortal enemy. After several attempts at escape, the lady orders him bound and chained to a wall in her chambers - where he will remain under her personal guard at all times and kept from conspiring with his men. While the lady's high-handedness infuriates him, Caden cannot deny that everything else about her drives him to distraction. Forced into close proximity with her, Caden soon finds it hard to remember his mission of escape.

When Lady Gwendolyn of House Toustain first lays eyes on her prisoner, one thing about him is abundantly clear: Sir Caden of Daleraia is a dangerous man. Yet, she must show him no fear. The captured band of knights from Daleraia are her only clue in the mystery surrounding the disappearance of House Toustain's sons, and it falls to Lady Gwen to seek justice. Is this kidnapping merely the ploy of mercenaries out for a ransom? Or has Sir Caden acted on the order of the High Lord of Daleraia and broken the peace? As she searches for the answers, she never expects the surge of passion that ignites between herself and her prisoner. The longer he remains in her clutches, the more Gwen realizes that though she has him chained, she is the one who has been captured.

    Lynet Giffard's mixed blood has made her a foreigner among her own people. She has spent her entire life striving to appear quiet, demure, and subservient in an attempt to keep from drawing scrutiny. All that changes when she encounters Sir Jarin Maignart. He is an enemy of her people, and a treasonous murderer - yet those facts mean nothing when she uncovers the complex man inside. Her people scorn her for caring for him, yet no other man has ever seen her as more than a half-breed oddity. With him, she blossoms into the kind of woman she always wished she could be.
