Lady Isobel is a Norman laird’s daughter, living near the Scots border where her father, Lord Pembroke, is trying to keep the peace. But her mother was a Highlander and the man Isobel loves most of all is Laird Marcus McEwan, who has been bringing news of her mother’s people for years. But now Isobel’s father wishes her wed to an English nobleman, who will carry on his title. Isobel will wed no other man but her heart’s desire—and that is one braw Highlander from her mother’s homeland.

Laird Marcus McEwan has loved the feisty lass forever. For years, Marcus has tried to convince Lord Pembroke to allow him to wed his daughter. But the Norman lord will not allow it. Then ambushes and murders make it too dangerous for Marcus to reach a peaceful resolution.

Nothing goes as planned and keeping the lass for his own is fraught with danger, as they try to determine who was behind the killings. Isobel and Marcus will do everything in their power to ensure they are together as they have always vowed they would be.


"She loves you," Rob said, "just like I said. How you ever won her over is beyond me when Finbar and I are so much brawer."

Shaking his head, unable to find the humor in the situation as much as he usually could, Marcus stiffly mounted his horse. "Unless I can change the earl's mind, there is no hope for us."

"Dinna be daft, man," Finbar said. "She is worth moving mountains for."

"He wants someone to produce an heir who will inherit his title and lands. No' a Highlander who wouldna live with her in the earl's world."

"Mayhap ‘tis time for the lass to learn the truth of her heritage," Rob said darkly.

Marcus did not want to be the one to tell her the truth. The word should come from the earl. He suspected the man would not speak with her about it ever, if he could hide the secret from her forever.

"Come," Marcus said. "'Tis nearly time for the celebration, and a bonny lass awaits my first dance." Marcus wondered though. Mayhap it was time that she learned the truth even if it meant he was the one who would have to tell her. Would she hate him for it?

That's what he feared.

When he arrived at the keep, the evening did not go as planned. He was permitted the first dance and tried to keep his distance from the lass as deemed appropriate, but the way Isobel looked so adoringly at him and moved in closer than was considered proper, he heard quite a few grumbles. She was declaring her heart to him, and her actions were not lost on the assembled lords and ladies.

He loved her for it, but feared for her, too. What if her da decided to force her to wed any Englishman of his own choice just to ensure Isobel didn't ruin her chances because of the affection she showed Marcus?
