Widowed following a marriage of convenience, Jeannie MacWherter has fled lowland Dumfries, Scotland, for the highland
cottage bequeathed to her late husband by his brother-in-arms, laird of the glen. Though she’s never met the laird, local
rumor labels him both murderer and seducer—a wicked, dangerous man who Jeannie learns is determined to chase her from his land.
Finnan MacAllister has come home to Glen Mhor in order to right past wrongs. He doesn’t care that Rowan Cottage is the
beautiful Widow MacWherter’s only refuge. He’s convinced she’s a wanton who deliberately broke the heart of his best friend,

With only the fiery Mara MacIvor for guide and with danger on his heels, he must risk all for a Cause in which he no longer believes.
Mara MacIvor considers Ramsay a poor substitute for her beloved Prince. Ramsay may be one of the bonniest men she’s ever met

by Sassenachs and ruthless Highland renegades bent on claiming the price on Prince Charlie’s head, their physical attraction soon
becomes a conflagration.
But will they ever be bound by more than Diarmad’s vow of honor?

Annie MacCallum is under threat from a brutal factor also, back at her home farm—one who preys on unmarried women.
If she’s to protect all those who rely on her, including her beloved animals, she must have a husband, if only in name.
Secretly glad when the attractive Tam takes up her proposition, she doesn’t realize she’s dragging him into a situation that
