Inside the Book:
Author: Heather Grothaus
Publisher: Lyrical Press
Genre: Historical Romance
It is not the first time Roman Berg has escaped death, and it will likely not be the last. There is a price on his head, and his tall Nordic bearing makes him stand out in Damascus. The skilled builder has witnessed the destruction of his life’s work at Chastellet and the murder of innocent victims. But there is no question of retreat; he cannot rest until he rescues his allies and warns King Baldwin of a murderous plot against him. And he may need help from an unexpected ally . . .
Isra Tak’Ahn is an uncommon beauty. Part Egyptian and part English, she is as brave as she is alluring. Like Roman, she has been marked for death by her enemies and her vendetta is fiercely personal. Driven into hiding, Isra joins Roman at Fallen Angels Abbey. Within the walls of the centuries-old sanctuary on the Danube, they plan their daring return to Jerusalem—and discover that their greatest asset may be each other. But passion has no place in these dangerous times, and Roman and Isra must fight their feelings while the future of the kingdom hangs in the balance . . .
