She ignored his comment and stepped back, the mist swirling around her body like a cape.  She quickly regained her composure and her blue eyes swept him without a hint of emotion.  “So,” she murmured, “you are the Prince of Darkness.”

He stared hard into her eyes as if he were reading her mind.

Ryen watched the emotions play over his face: recognition, disbelief, and then furious anger.

His eyes widened with incredulity.  “The Angel of Death?  A woman?”

“You have heard the legends –?”

“Unchain me this instant!”

The blurb:

In this exciting medieval romance, the French lady knight known as the Angel of Death wages a battle of wills and desires against her dreaded enemy — the English warrior known as the Prince of Darkness. 

Ryen De Bouriez is a French warrior, dedicated to protecting her country against the hated English. In place of glittering ball gowns, she wears shining armor. Instead of practicing the gentler arts, she wields a sword. Those who whisper her name in fear and awe call her the Angel of Death. 

Bryce Princeton is the Prince of Darkness, an English knight sent by his king to find and destroy their most hated adversary — the Angel of Death. Little does he know that his enemy is no man at all, but a beautiful woman who will challenge his heart and honor at every turn.

Forced to choose between love and honor, the Angel and the Prince wage a battle of wills that challenges everything they have ever believed in.
