Among the men sent to escort her and the surviving villagers back over the border is her former suitor - Wilfrid.
The past decade has changed, and embittered, them both. Wil no longer believes in love, and Cynewyn no longer believes in happy endings. Yet neither are prepared for the passion that ignites between them, or its consequences...
