Bound by his vow to her dying mother, Rumon brought Merewyn safely to England and kept from her and all others the shameful secret of her birth. But there his responsibility ended. Alfrida, Queen of England, dazzled him with her beauty and held him in subjection to her will. Freed by the revelation of Alfrida's murderous actions, Rumon finally turned to Merewyn, only to find that he had lost her."
