They stole everything from her, including her dignity. With his help, she'll get it back.
Braden Grant is haunted by the death of his friend Ronan, who took his own life. No one knows why the warrior resorted to such desperate measures, but Braden blames himself. He won't feel settled until he's atoned for failing to save his friend, and when he meets Cairstine Muir, he wonders if he's finally found his chance. Held against her will by the very man who killed her family, the lass is a prisoner in her own keep. Her beauty and quiet strength call to him as much as her situation urges him to fight.
Though life has taught her harsh lessons, Cairstine still has an ember of hope in her heart. She longs to escape her captors and exact vengeance on them, but nothing is more important to her than her wee son's safety. Though she failed to save her family, she pledges she will always save him, come what may. When a strong, handsome defender steps into her life, promising to help her exact vengeance on her captors, she sees the opportunity she's waited for...but is the possibility of a new life worth the risk to her son?

Highland Scots historical tale
We begin in 1298. It is an interesting time but one in which I prefer to read about instead of live. I love the Scots highland scenery but am rather fond of cars with my horses and plumbing with electrical connections. The were and are a proud historically inclined folk with great heritage! I applaud that but just prefer to be a tourist!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Great storyline, wonderful character development. Highly recommended.
