Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0373811128, Mass Market Paperback)From the wilds of Moreland to the court of Camelot, a woman searches for her true powers . . .
Fleeing from the knowledge that her father had promised her to an evil sorcerer, Risa of the Morelands refused to be a sacrifice. Armed with her bow and her confidence, she swore to evade the wicked Euberacon's claim. And when she stumbled upon Sir Gawain, returning to Camelot to warn of a plot against the kingdom, she thought she'd discovered the perfect place to hide. Surely the sorcerer Euberacon would not approach her at court?
Now ensnared with court and political intrigue, Risa is out of her element. And Euberacon has forced a strong transformation spell upon her. There might be one chance left to save kingdom and soul -- but it would take all the strength and power she had . . .

Based on the anonymous poem "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight," follows the lovely but cursed Risa from the moment her fate was sealed. The wealthy Rygehil promises his unborn daughter to the sorcerer Euberacon in exchange for the life of his sick and dying wife. Knowing that when his daughter comes of age he will lose her, Rygehil grows distraught and refuses to let the beautiful Risa marry. Frustrated and headstrong, Risa grabs her bow and flees. Euberacon is not so easily deceived and, determined to have her as his wife, chases after her. Risa must rely on the help of brooding stranger Sir Gawain, Knight of the Round Table, to escape the sorcerer's grasp. But alas, Risa is truly cursed, and her father's deal with the devil has set in motion a series of events that even the noble Gawain may not be able to overcome.
