This Scottish historical romance has it all: “Passion, intrigue, a falsely accused witch and a tormented mercenary hero” (Brenda Joyce, New York Times–bestselling author of A Sword Upon the Rose).
Twice a widow and now suspected of witchcraft, Sorcha MacIver must find a man who can overcome the curse that haunts her—or burn at the stake at the hands of her own clan. Mercenary Ian Hunter thought marrying Sorcha would be easy money and a way to escape Scotland and his treacherous brother who stole his first bride. But neither counted on Sorcha being a pawn in a deadly play for the throne of Scotland by King James’s cousin. Witch hunts are only the beginning, and a trial judged by the king himself might be their ultimate demise . . .
