Feed the poor. Find her parents' murderer. Seek revenge. When Eiry Savoy fakes her own death and takes the outlaw hood as Lady Thief, she thought nothing could derail her plans until Sir Lucian Martine, the Butcher of Acre, is given Castle Sanctuary and made guardian over her little sister by Queen Eleanor. Eiry soon learns man and legend are quite different. Martine is a man most distracting to her purpose, a man who stirs her heart and makes her yearn for his touch. Once a Crusader, Lucian Martine is determined to change his life, even if it means taking on a rundown castle and an orphaned little girl. Despite his hopes, murder and thieves have taken root in the Hope Valley, and he must try to learn who the real villains are and not get killed in the end. In spite of the danger, he is attracted to his ward's maid and feels more than bitterness and anger. Can she save him or will she be devoured by the beast he has become? Can a thief who is determined to save her people and seek vengeance find a hero in a man rumored to lack a soul, whom the Devil himself fears? Or will her enemies see her betrayed by the very man whose heart she would gladly steal for her own?
