Lady Philippa Willoughby is known for hosting many gatherings and celebrations at the castle. Somewhat meddlesome at times, she has taken it upon herself to play matchmaker to the villagers. This, along with her carefree ways, causes her to be the brunt of gossip that she is an improper lady. When her father betroths her to a Frenchman she has never met, she rebels, planning on finding a match for herself at her upcoming St. Valentine’s Day dance.
Lord Etienne de Beynac, the youngest of six boys, has managed to disgrace his family with his wild ways. When his father and brothers disown him he has no choice but to agree to his father’s terms. He joins a monastery as a novice across the channel, in England.
Etienne gets one last chance for redemption before he finalizes his vows to live the rest of his life as a monk. As a favor to his brother, he goes to Grimsthorpe Castle to spy on his brother’s betrothed, Lady Philippa. He needs to find out if she is a proper lady with whom his family can align. But once there, he discovers a strong attraction to Lady Philippa that threatens his plans to be a monk.
Will a St. Valentine’s Day dance bring two misfits together in love? And will a man slated for a life of celibacy and poverty be able to put down the rosary and pick up the sword to fight for the woman he loves?
