Wounded at The Battle of Hastings, Grand Master Knight Lucas was unable to ride with William of Normandy to claim the throne of England. Instead, he and his knights were ordered to remain and seize Saxon territories. Lucas led his knights into a charge to Sussex and overthrew Alford Castle.
Her father, killed defending his home against the Norman invaders, his daughter Angelica became Lady of the Castle. She willfully defied Lucas' commands; the two of them nearly coming to blows.
In his attempt to make the lady submit to his will, Lucas fell in love with her. Not long after, Angelica reciprocated that love.
Despite their glaring differences, the constant fight for dominance, the tragedies and heartaches they suffered, their love for one another remained strong.
