Fans of "romance à la Outlander" (RT Book Reviews), will love this sexy, action-packed Scottish historical as a battle-hardened Highlander will fight with all he has to save the woman he loves--even if she can never love him back.
After being unceremoniously jilted by her betrothed, Lady Mairi MacKenzie is humiliated and heartbroken - but she's not desperate. As the daughter of an earl, she won't give her hand to just anyone, and she definitely isn't swayed by a last-minute proposal from Laird Duncan MacRae. The powerful clan chieftain may be disarmingly handsome and charming, but he's not a nobleman. Mairi doesn't want his pity or his charity - even though his dark smoldering gaze makes her melt with desire.
Dunn may be a battle-hardened clansman, but he's always had a soft spot for Mairi. For years, she tormented him with flirtation - only to reject him. But he's not giving up. When Mairi is attacked by redcoats, Dunn goes after the woman he loves. Through brute strength and fierce action, he will protect her life at any cost. But to win her heart, he will have to show her the tenderness in his own.

Lady Mairi MacKenzie, proud daughter of the Earl of Cromartie, was crushed when her longtime fianc , the Earl of Seaforth, wed another, but she refused Laird Dunn MacRae's subsequent offer of marriage, believing it was only made as a favor to Seaforth. After Dunn protects Mairi during an attack of British redcoats, she realizes that his proposal was sincere, based on his enduring affection and admiration of her.

Sexual tension heats up the pages as Mairi agrees to wed Dunn against her father's wishes. Mairi's fortitude and sense of independence make her an admirable protagonist for this fast-paced, expertly crafted romance.
