Featuring: Payton Douglas; Mared Lockhart
Add to Wish List
The Lockhart brothers' quest for an ancient family
heirloom has proved fruitless . . . and an unpaid loan has
left them indebted to their rival, Payton Douglas. With no
recourse, the Lockharts offer Payton their most valuable
commodity: their sister Mared's hand in marriage.
Raised to despise the Douglas name, Mared outwardly agrees
to the marital bargain for the sake of her family;
secretly, she concocts a plan to ensure Payton will not
wish to marry her. Seeing the handsome, virile laird
Payton face-to-face, however, threatens a centuries-long
enmity -- and awakens Mared's deepest desires. But she
will not be swayed. Choosing to repay her family's debt by
working as his housekeeper instead of wedding him, she
finds herself inexorably drawn to the man she vowed to
resist. Then a profound discovery changes
everything. . . . Now, no longer bound by a promise to her
family, Mared must let her heart decide if the laird
Payton is the enemy of past legend -- or if he holds the
key to a future filled with a passion beyond her wildest
