Wager of the Heart was previously released as part of the Once Upon a Highland Glen anthology in 2019. There is no added content, no bonus scenes. It is a novella.
When Graham Keith wakes after a night of debauchery and drink, he finds he’s not only won a very comely lass in a game of chance, he’s also married her. Worse yet, his pretty bride comes with three small children.
He is Leelah MacDonald’s last vestige of hope. She’d make a deal with the devil if she had to, in order to get her children back into the safe and loving arms of her family. But Graham Keith has no desire for a wife or children, as they’d interfere with his gambling and drinking and roaming ways.
But the lass is desperate—so desperate she is willing to put her life, and the lives of her children, in the hands of a gambler and drunk. Ignoring the little voice inside his head that warns him to run far and fast away from the woman, he listens instead to the honorable warrior of his heart.
How hard could it be to see the lovely Leelah and her three children back to Clan Hay?
