Bound by Duty
Colin MacGregor was born to fight-for his beliefs, his king, and his family's honor. After years away from his beloved Scotland, he yearns to return to its lush, green hills-and he can, after he completes one final mission for the king. Sent to infiltrate a traitor's home, Colin is determined to expose the treasonous plot and triumph on the battlefield . . . until he meets a sensual lass who tempts him towards other pursuits . . . .
Betrayed by Passion
Lady Gillian Dearly is no stranger to temptation. Cast out of her family for bearing an illegitimate child, she's now the ward of a barbarian conspiring against the king. Her only desire: freedom for her son and for herself at any cost, even if it means making a deal with the devil. Yet when a mysterious Highlander appears in their midst, his braw strength and smoldering gaze give her hope for a future beyond the castle walls-and promise a desire unlike any she's ever known. But passion comes at a price . . .
Quinn's fourth and final Children of the Mist romance (after Tamed by a Highlander) brings 1688 England to life, complete with espionage, treachery, uprisings. Colin MacGregor, a supporter of the Catholic king, James Stuart, infiltrates Dartmouth Castle, pretending to be a supporter of William of Orange. Colin, a seasoned warrior, is unprepared for his attraction to Lady Gillian Dearly, the cousin of the lord of Dartmouth. Colin's interaction with Gillian and her young son, Edmund, is laced with emotion and causes Colin to question his mission as a spy, as does his slow realization that James is as guilty of wrongdoing as William. Readers will adore Gillian, a woman who has honed her survival techniques in a society where women had few rights. Rich, evocative historical detail and enthralling characters fill the pages of this fast-paced tale.
