The Dark Lady Publisher's Summary

She should have grown up in a life of luxury and ease; instead she was thrust into one of danger and deception....

Forced by her scheming mother to pretend that she was a boy, Vanessa Fordella became Van, the Dark Knight, in 12th-century England. But when her now-dying mother demands that she leave behind her charade and marry, Van embarks on the most difficult journey of her life. And if her new husband ever finds out the truth....

After years of war, all he wants is peace and the simple life....

Peter Lawston, Lord Grayweist, hopes for a shy and controllable wife to run his castle and bear his children. What arrives instead is a hellcat who doesn't know the first thing about being docile or obedient. There's something familiar about his unconventional wife, but Peter can't put his finger on it.

As Van struggles to let go of the knight she has been and become the wife she is expected to be, events unfold that threaten to destroy everything she holds dear, including her very life.

    Evan Lawston had lived his entire life, all 12 years of it, under the shadow of the Dark Knight. The Dark Knight had reigned with a dangerous reputation of fear and respect. A parent with a reputation like that was great, what every 12-year-old boy should dream of. But you have to be careful what you wish for, because sometimes your wishes come true, just not like you had hoped.
