Once upon a time, a knight and the daughter of one of Henry III's barons fell in love. He was Stephen of Bellingham; she, Amarantha of Ullswater. They were brought together by a desperate bid to escape the madness of Baldwin, Earl of Cumbria. The taste of their first kiss still on his lips, Stephen made a vow: to love Mara forever and keep her safe. But in a battle to save their lives and love, she died in his arms.
Today, Steve Bellingham wakes up. Today, he begins to see again what happened so long before. Today, he knows only one thing can make his life whole. He will reach back into the past, fulfill his vow; he will complete the circle of a promise.
