England 1642: Hardened mercenary, Adam Coulter returns to England sickened by violence, seeking only peace, but he finds England on the brink of civil war. King or Parliament? Neutrality is not an option and as the war and as family tensions collide around them, Adam and the woman he loves, Perdita Gray, are torn between old loyalties and a growing attraction that must be resisted.

And no doubt he could flip that hair like a boss.
