A Russian countess and an English cavalier set each other aflame and shake a royal court to its foundations. "Forever in Your Embrace" continues the great Woodiwiss tradition, plunging you into the hot-blooded, tempestuous world of Europe four centuries ago. There, in the depths of a forest, the beautiful and fiercely independent Countess Synnovea suffers a rude interruption in her travels, the arrival of a band of brigands! Robbery and rape seem inevitable. Then, out of nowhere, a royal officer rides to Synnovea's rescue, only to disappear again before she has even thanked him. Who was he?Synnovea gets the answer a few hours later at a roadside inn, when she inadvertently steps naked into a bathhouse pool that's already occupied by her rescuer! By the time she learns he is Sir Tyrone Rycoft, a British soldier of fortune, she has been piqued by his bold, swaggering ways, and has aroused in him a passion he had long since forsworn. Though neither of them can know it yet, from now on their fates will be inseparable, during intrigues at court, wars abroad, and one great, explosive scandal.
