Lachlann flees to Scotland to escape witch hunters, only to have one target him.
Lachlann has made a good life for himself in Scotland, learning to fight with a sword to back up and better hide his magical powers. But something or someone must have given him away because a hunter and his daughter have come asking pointed questions.
He adroitly sidesteps most of their questions, while preparing to run. He'd done it before, so this time should be easy, right? He might have thought so, but the hunter's daughter, Isla, has claimed his heart despite him warding off love. Why his magic fails him now, he couldn't begin to explain. But, can he risk death at the hands of her father just for a chance at her love?
Isla has spent years with her father tracking down dark witches...and not so dark witches...and rumors thereof. She has also spent those years trying to protect them from people like her father. She has a dark secret which could get her killed, one she wants to entrust to Lachlann, despite everything. Love hits her between the eyes the first time they touched, and now, she is stuck between her father and the man who stole her heart. How can she choose between family and her heart's desire?
More, could she trust Lachlann with her secret?
Because, if she trusted wrong, the penalty was death at her own father's hands.
