Show synopsis At twenty-one, after two Seasons with no takers, Theodosia Barrington should have been grateful to snare Nigel Crosgrove. The earl-to-be was a blue-eyed Adonis, a true catch- and surely the incident in Covent Garden was exaggerated. And yet, upon her arrival at Cashel Cosgrove, Thea found herself more intrigued by the rich Irish castle's legend, the tragic warrior Ros Drumcondran, than by her intended.

If only that Gypsy woman had spoken the truth, and Thea was a woman out of time, the one meant to be the Falcon's Bride.
