The Earl of Kenloch is the king's Black Dragon, his fiercest, most loyal knight. When Kenloch is ordered to marry the daughter of a baron, he seethes, but is forced to obey. However, he chooses the baron's dark-haired older daughter Johanna instead of the vain, selfish golden Juliana. It is a love match from the beginning, but they constantly fight the king's demands that Kenloch leave his growing family and return to court -- to play and dance attendance on the spoiled king. Life is hard and dangerous for Johanna, as Kenloch is forced again and again to court. How will she finally convince the king to let Kenloch come home and not lose the king's favor?
Life is hard in those days but Johanna is clever enough to thwart covetous neighbors and outwit dangerous visitors.
