The Warrior and the Enchantress
Diana Sherrill Richards, author
Chanity was the beloved daughter of the Chieftain and Lady of Holdenworth. She enjoyed a happy childhood until the day raiders attacked. Vorik the merciless slew her father and enslaved her mother, Serina. After Serina's death, Chanity was alone and in Vorik's care. Who would protect her from him? She had nowhere to run, and no one to run to. Chanity was older now, and did not believe in a fairytale Knight in shining armor, but perhaps she should. Derek was a skilled warrior, born the second son of an Earl in Normandy. At the age of ten and six years, he and his two best friends set out to join William, the Duke of Normandy. Derek proved himself on the field of battle, and was quickly Knighted. After nine years of service to William, he was given permission to raid Holdenworth, and seize it from Vorik. At long last, he could avenge his family and claim the land and title he had fought for all these years. It came as no surprise to Sir Derek that the people of Holdenworth saw his arrival as a godsend. What did come as a surprise was finding Chanity, a truly enchanting beauty. But would enchantment be enough when he wanted a true love that would last a lifetime?
