內容簡介 "I've faced the meanest, toughest warriors in Aldland, I've been stabbed and sliced and lanced, but I never trembled until I met you."After years of humiliating defeat, Brandon the Bear has at last found his strength renewed by the love of Natalie Blackmere. When he and his lady are called back to the Champion's Guild, and the hosting nobleman demands they take part in the Grand Tourney, Brandon sees a chance to prove his worth once and for all. Natalie is finally free to love her champion, but finds herself struggling with the newfound pressures of notoriety. Suffocating in silk and wilting under the prying eyes of Aldland's nobility, she dreads the day she must return to her duties at the castle. But when she and Brandon return to the Champion's Guild, she must decide who she wants to be; Lady Natalie, or the Lioness of Blackmere.
