As the new chief of Clan Mackay, Gideon Sinclair knows the importance of maintaining order at any cost. To keep the conquered clan in line, Gideon must mete out ruthless justice or risk losing their precious new peace. But from the moment he meets Cait Mackay—aye, from the moment the sweetness of her lips captures his—all of Gideon’s careful objectivity is well and thoroughly compromised.
Cait knows that kissing the brawny Highlander is a dangerous game. It was bad enough she picked his pocket to feed the children in her care, but sometimes a desperate woman must disguise her crimes any way she can. Only her act of deception has made things worse… Because one kiss with the Highland’s most brutal chief leaves her breathless and out of her depth.
Now Gideon must choose between his duty and his heart when his lovely thief is accused of treason against the king himself.

After Willa falls into an icy creek, Gideon saves her and Cait repays him by picking his pocket to buy medication and food. It's not her finest hour, but she wasn't intending to steal his gold ring. When she sneaks into his castle to return it, she's caught but, due to Gideon's fondness for her, her punishment is not to lose a hand, but to plan a festival at the castle. As preparations commence, Cait and Gideon fall for each other against a backdrop of clan intrigue and war.
