Are they willing to risk love and freedom for queen and country?
Heather Gordon has enjoyed the privileges of sixteenth-century Scottish nobility her entire life. Despite this comfort and ease, she yearns for a more fulfilling existence. Her prayers are soon answered--though not quite the way she expected.
Duncan Mackenzie has never known a life beyond the rugged Highland countryside. When a daring rescue is planned to free Mary, Queen of Scots, Duncan finds he is the key to unlocking the fortress where she is imprisoned. But first he must shed his rough Highland ways and learn to behave as a fine gentleman--something only a member of the nobility can teach him.
Heather and Duncan find themselves drawn together against their better judgment to complete this daring rescue. But in the close quarters of Duncan's remote Highland cottage, there is more stirring than political rebellion. Deceit, betrayal, and unexpected love draw you into this gripping story.
"Hold on to your plaid! In a sweeping romance set against the Scottish Highlands, Kathleen Morgan weaves a love story rich in ancestry, betrayal, and the passionate journey of two stubborn hearts destined to war--and to be conquered."--Tamera Alexander, bestselling author of Rekindled
