To Claim His Highland Bride
Destiny claims they are mortal enemies, but their hearts say otherwise.
When Rowena MacLeod falls in love with the son of her family’s greatest enemy, her laird brother refuses to grant her hand in marriage until Marcus MacDonald can provide for his sister. Marcus, now penniless after being disowned by his clan, sets sail to seek his fortune as a privateer. Rowena waits faithfully for her beloved, but on the day Marcus returns, she’s kidnapped by a vengeful MacDonald.
Marcus lost many men while seeking his fortune, and he’s determined to make amends by sharing his wealth with their families. Believing he can now no longer marry, Marcus refuses to pay Rowena’s ransom, instead offering to take his cousin to Uamh Oir, the Cave of Gold, and relinquish any treasure found. When Rowena escapes, she insists Marcus marry her and take her aboard his ship. With their plunder, she’ll make a new life for herself far from him and her family—provided they don’t consummate their marriage.
As danger surrounds Marcus and Rowena, can they resist the love and desire that’ve been tangled up in family duty and betrayal?
Marcus and Rowena
Rowena MacLeod falls in love with her clans biggest rival Marcus MacDonald and against all the odds his love is returned! Marcus leaves his clan, family, friends and all he knew for the woman who owns his heart, body and soul. Due to his betraying the MacDonald’s he feared for his parents safety too, so he moved them into the MacLeod’s castle. Furthermore he is putting every shilling he owns into the ship he purchased named “The Cliodna” to leave Rowena to seek his fortune so he can prove to himself and The MacLeod’s he can support their sister and only then would they allow her to marry him in the lifestyle she deserves. Except this is a dangerous mission as anything could happen in these unpredictable, rough, freezing, high seas. They could be calm still waters or so rough they could throw every man overboard into a watery grave. All to prove he is worthy for Rowena MacLeod, the one lass who is the love of his life.
