England, 1994. Richard Lambert had come to England to visit his ancestral home. It was a trip meant to be shared with his wife, Lucy, before her untimely death. While exploring a medieval tower, only one thought fills his head: if only he could be with his beloved. And as he climbs the steps, he falls from the tower - and into a medieval keep . . .
England, 1214. Thrust back in time, Richard finds himself in the body of his brutal ancestor, Richard de Lambert, near death from battle. De Lambert's wife reluctantly nurses him back to health . . . but with time, she sees that he is no longer the cruel man she knew. And when Richard looks at her, he knows he's been given a second chance. He had lost his love once, and he's not about to lose her again . . .
"My - my lord," she managed, her breathing caught in her throat.
"Are you all right? I heard you calling - you must have had a bad dream." He shifted his position, and she saw he knelt above her on one knee. Through the open collar of his bed gown, she saw the hair that curled in black clusters on his chest.
"Yes," she said. "I'm fine. It was only a bad dream."
He said nothing, and in the dim moonlight, she saw his eyes run down the length of her body, hidden as it was beneath the shift and the quilt. "Come," he said, at last, "You're cold."
Without waiting for a response, he picked her up as easily as if she were a child . . . He eased the door open, and carried her to his - their - bed . . .
