Set in the year 1214 on English soil, near the border. Dominic Dragon of Pendragon was one of King John's most trusted knights. Even so, the Dragon Lord was surprised when the king gave him Ayrdale. King John had executed the Baron of Ayrdale for treason. Dominic was to immediately take up residence and marry either the widow or the daughter of the deceased Lord.
Lady Rose was all thorns on the outside! Trained as a warrior she guarded her mother, twin sister, and people until such time as her father returned. Instead of her father, the Dragon Lord arrived. Knowing the knight would want a meek wife and would chose her twin, Starla, to wed, Rose tricked him into believing the warrior sister was named Starla. Right after the wedding, Starla and their mother left for the convent. Newly married, Rose stayed home (now named Dragonwyck) to deal with Dominic.
Except when in bed, the two clashed! Things worsen when her uncle, Murdoc MacTavish, arrived with his men to claim the castle. Rose's marriage would not deter him. He and his step-son, Gunn, would do anything necessary to claim Dragonwyck as his own!
