Defiant, by Jessica Trapp

Defiant

Overview

A woman with a mission...

After seeing women brutally raped and sold into slavery, the enchantress Gweneth of Windrose vows to do anything to set them free.  Even resort to seduction, deceit and murder.  Or kidnapping a man and forcing him to marry her.

A man who has been wronged...

Disguised as a commoner, Jared the Hawker hides in the shadows to avoid being thrown back into prison for a murder he did not commit.  Night after night, he sits at a tavern, gathering information to clear his name, until the most beautiful woman he has ever seen seduces him into drinking a tankard of drugged ale. He wakes up and finds himself bound in unholy matrimony.
