New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands
welcomes readers back to the Scottish Highlands, where a
gallant warrior vows to protect a beautiful runaway . . .
Lady Murine Carmichael has known her share of bad luck. But
when her debt-ridden half brother tries to sell her off in
exchange for a few Scottish horses, itâ€™s the final straw. If
keeping her freedom means escaping through harsh countryside
alone, so be it. She has barely begun her journey when she
lands an unlikely escortâ€”the brawny Highlander who just
refused to buy her virtue.
Dougall Buchanan was disgusted by Lord Danvriesâ€™ shameful
offer, but Murine tempts him beyond measure. Even bedraggled
and dusty, the lass glows with beauty and bravery. Dougall
wants to do more than just help her flee. He wants to
protect herâ€”with his life and his heartâ€”if sheâ€™ll only let
him. For Murine may be pursued by a powerful foe, but
nothing compares to the fiery courage of a Highlander in love.
