A fearsome warrior hiding a dark secret.
A runaway bride in disguise.
Rannoch Moor, Scotland, 1166
Lady Flora finds herself betrothed to Ragnall, a battle-hardened Highlander.
That same night, her father, the chieftain, is stabbed through the heart.
When Ragnall takes on the mantle of the clan's leadership, one thing seems clear: he must be the killer.
In horror, Flora flees but, vowing revenge, concocts a plan to return in disguise.
Ragnall will never suspect a dairymaid.
And how hard can it be to milk a cow?
What she doesn't expect is to fall in love with the man who should inspire her hate.
Nor to learn he believes his runaway bride to be her father's murderer!
Before either can discover the truth, Flora is at the mercy of an unseen enemy.
In a storm of vengeance, treachery and passion, Flora's fate, and that of all the Dalreagh clan, is sealed.
