By Lisa Ann Verge
Bay Street Press
SUMMARY: Blessed with an angel’s voice, Maura of Killeigh escapes from a convent determined to join a band of traveling players. They’ll be her protection on the roads while she searches for the parents who abandoned her at birth. But once face-to-face with the seductive, sinfully handsome vagabond who rules the troupe, Maura wonders if she wouldn’t be safer traveling alone.

She took a breath so deep that her surcoat tightened across her breasts. Certainly the great wide world and all the people in it couldn’t be as dangerous or wicked as the Abbess always insisted. In any case, it was too late to turn back. She hadn’t escaped the convent only to lose courage now....
