Unlucky in love, Maddie St. Clair hides behind an antique store and her mudlarking hobby. That is until she finds a medieval ring that throws her back to 1102 Cumberland and into the life of Lady Madeline Vincent, heiress to Norman lands and about to be married to an autocratic Baron, William Dowell, nine hundred years her senior.

Lord William Dowell protects his own. Usually, from his closest neighbor and long standing foe the Baron of Aimecourt. Forced to marry his dead enemy’s daughter, Lady Madeline, by King’s decree, he hides his growing respect for his wife behind a wanton mistress. Yet when Madeline’s life is threatened, William’s loyalty to his kin is tested by the astonishing desire that flares between them. Not to mention the love that Madeline ignites that would last an eternity. If fate will allow . . .


A Medieval England, Historical Romance. Fast paced with engaging and creditable characters. The storyline is a but unique in it takes place in England during King Henry I era, and modern day England.
Danger and revenge lurks around the corner for the H/H due to a past hurt by one if the heroine’s ancestors.
The characters were well developed. The storyline easy to follow. Fans if Time-Travel, Historical Romance and the Medieval era of England, are sure to enjoy “Defiant Surrender”. An enjoyable and satisfying read. I would, however, have loved to learn more of our H/H’s future together. A unique but satisfying read!
