Moira is a serf-born woman who has been taught by life to expect nothing, especially the love of a high-born man of power and privilege. Addis is that man of power and privilege, but he has also been dealt some hard blows. First he was left for dead on a crusade (and his wounds were not delivered by the enemy!), and then he spent six years as a slave, so he understands Moira’s need to be more than a bondwoman. But he also knows that he only feels whole when he is with her. The problem, of course, is that the rules of society say that they can never be more than lord and lehman, and Moira knows that her soul, her spirit, could never survive being only his mistress, especially once Addis marries, as he must to secure an alliance and provide legitimate heirs. All Addis knows is that he must find a way to make sure that their ‘accident of birth’ does not keep them apart. I was impressed with the steps he took to bring them their very unlikely happy ending.
