Even as a fourteen-year-old orphan, Simon Beauvallet knows his own mind.

Later, friend and foe alike will know better than to cross the flaxen-haired mountain of a man whose exploits in battle have earned him knighthood, lands and gilded armour.

However, his close circle of friends know him by another name: Simon the Coldheart.

He seems to be a man incapable of love - until in Normandy he meets Lady Margaret, the so-called spitfire of Belremy.

Can she melt Simon's icy demeanour and quench his fiery rage?
