Blair MacManus will not let a man tell her how to run her life. She will not let Laird Fergus Campbell betroth her to a man in his guardsman troops. She wants to follow in her dear departed mother's footsteps. She wants to be a healer. Laird Campbell considers Blair practically as a daughter. One that needs to be bent to his will. She'll be no man's bride. That is not in the cards for Blair. Nae at all.
Jameson Connor's lands have been stolen by a lowlife. He's living among brigands and refugees from clan wars. He and his men are constantly living on the fringe of society, making ends meet the best they can. Until a skirmish leaves Jameson in quite a quandary. His legs are damaged in a fire. When his men decide to abduct a lass on the road, who'd have known she's an aspiring healer. One with a good heart and a sharp mind.
Can Jameson convince Blair to abandon her journey to her best friend's keep in order to stay with his clan? To soothe their wounds and heal his heart?
