Pippa survives by her clever wit and her talent for becoming anyone she chooses to be. She doesn't know who she is or who her family might be. She doesn't know why she's alone but what she wants most of all is to know that someone loved her once. When she gets herself into trouble and is being threatened with the stocks, she appeals to an Irish chieftain for help-- and discovers the first taste of kindness she has ever known. As the O Donoghue Mór, Aidan has been summoned to London by Queen Elizabeth. He is there to sign treaties and plead for peace. Aidan is willing to trade his pride for the lives of his people but the queen is keeping him waiting. Intrigued by the dirty and outspoken Pippa, Aidan comes to her aide and finds himself the unwilling guardian of the young woman. As much as he desires Pippa, Aidan's honor forbids him from taking advantage of her trusting nature. He married a woman to ensure peace for his people but Aidan is heartsick at what the union has cost him. Delighted with her good fortune and thrilled to be able to trade in her rags for finer clothes, Pippa clings to Aidan. He is her savior and though she tells him she will never love him, it is too late. The great Irish chieftain has touched her heart and even though she knows that a match between the two of them can never happen, Pippa loves Aidan. When Aidan's plans go awry, Pippa finds herself on a ship bound for Ireland. But she can't give up her dream of finding her real family-- and Aidan knows the truth to her mysterious past.This is classic Wiggs! A marvelous tale of love that will steal into your heart!

In England to bargain with Elizabeth I for his people and his country, Irish chieftain Aidan O'Donoghue surprises himself by saving a common strolling entertainer from arrest and ends up with a woman who is everything he always wanted and knew he could never have. Political intrigue, passion, and a frightening bit of Puritan fanaticism combine in a tale of vulnerability and rediscovered love and trust that features an outspoken, intrepid heroine, a hero worthy of the name, and other unforgettable characters. The story is compelling and, despite a rather miraculous conclusion, will keep readers involved to the end. Wiggs (Lord of the Night, HarperCollins, 1994) is a past winner of RWA's Golden Choice Award. She lives on Bainbridge Island, Washington.
