One Night in Hartswood by Emma Denny
A love story worth fighting for...
When his sister's betrothed vanishes the night before her politically arranged marriage, Raff Barden must track and return the elusive groom to restore his family's honour. William de Foucart - known to his friends as Penn - had no choice but to abandon his intended, and with it his own earldom, when he fled the night before his enforced marriage.
But ill-equipped to survive on the run he must trust the kindness of a stranger, Raff, to help him escape. Unaware their fates are already entwined, the men journey north. But amidst the snow-capped forests an unexpected bond deepens into a far more precious relationship, one that will test all that they hold dear.
And when secrets are finally revealed, both men must decide what they will risk for the one they love...
