Do you work too much?

Here’s a not-so-fun fact for you: if you work a typical 40-hour work week from the time you’re 20 to when you turn 65, you’ll work over 90,000 hours in your life. Time to clock out and take a vacation, don’t you think?

For a Knight of the Swan, any mission might lead to fortune—but the chance for love comes once in a lifetime . . .

Margaret Grace is the lady of Fletchers Landing, earning what she can as a beekeeper and mead maker, and playing a nerve-wracking game with the mercenaries who demand payment to ensure her village’s safety. When an unknown man appears on horseback one day, Meg knows she can’t trust him—especially when the dashing knight claims to be looking for fabled lost riches. But her desires are harder to control . . .

Tormented by the memories of his imprisonment at the hands of a vicious mercenary, Sir Nathan Staves is glad to be abroad on a quest for His Majesty. His task promises the chance to recover a legendary lost bounty, but also throws him into the path of the beguiling Meg. Their breathtaking passion awakens just as a familiar danger does, forcing Nathan to decide which is the greater prize—an elusive treasure, or the love of a woman he will die to protect . . .
