Just returned from the Crusades, brothers Gavin and Will find home changed more than they'd expected - in fact home is a very dangerous place indeed.
Ellie is reluctantly preparing for her wedding to Gavin. He's not the problem - marriage is. To Ellie, it means a) servitude, b) no independence and c) certain death in childbirth before she's 18. But marriage, it turns out, is the least of her worries. King Richard has been declared dead and his brother John is claiming the throne. Hartslove castle is attacked on the day of the wedding - and Ellie is kidnapped by one of Prince John's supporters. Gavin knows he should try to rescue her - but can't help thinking that a one-armed knight is no use to anyone, especially a beautiful girl like Ellie. It's left to William and his horse Hosanna to rescue Ellie and prove that King Richard is still alive - but success in both is marred by a tragedy that none of them will ever forget.
The heartbreaking sequel to K. M. Grant's brilliant debut novel, BLOOD RED HORSE
