(From the publisher):
She was Matilda, the arrogant, cold daughter of Henry I. An empress, a woman who had worn out one aging husband, only to dominate her next, a mere boy, Geoffrey, first of the fiery Plantagents. Only one man had ever mattered to Matilda, ever since childhood. He was her cousin. He was married. He was her true love. He was her rival to the throne -- her enemy...
He was Stephen, a man who used honey in a land of warriors, who sweetened whatever cup would toast his claim to the throne. And the only obstacle in his path toward ruling all of England and Normandy was Henry's daughter, his own cousin, his one true love.
Forever to fight, forever to love, they were... The Passionate Enemies.
