Still mourning the death of his beloved wife in childbirth, Scots laird Roger Douglas accepts a dangerous mission from King Robert the Bruce—anything to escape the grief consuming him. He joins a delegation to England seeking the release of the king’s wife from imprisonment, but they are ambushed before reaching York.
When he awakens in terrible pain from his wounds, Roger finds himself in a rough-hewn hut surrounded by forest creatures… a fawn, a squirrel, an injured fox. All of them tended by a dark-haired beauty who urges him gently back to sleep. Later, he discovers she is Julianna de Vescy, the betrothed of the English baron who attacked their delegation. Recovered enough to travel, Roger must abduct the very woman who saved his life to ensure his safe return to Scotland.
