In the Highlands of Scotland, honor and loyalty are worth more than life itself. But when a haunted woman meets a wronged warrior, love will prove more powerful than anything they have ever known.
Isabail Grant has had to be strong all her life. Over the years, she has lost everyone close to her, and now she’s seeking justice for her brother’s murder. But en route to Edinburgh to petition the king, she is kidnapped by a fierce warrior—and is shocked to find herself irresistibly drawn to her captor.
Aiden MacCurran is an outlaw. The laird of a small clan, he’s been falsely accused of killing the king’s courier and stealing the Crown’s property—and the key to clearing his name and redeeming his clan lies in Isabail’s memories. But Aiden and Isabail must first weather deceit and treachery before they can find the truth and claim the love that’s growing between them....
Keats continues her Claimed by the Highlander 13th-century romance series (after Taming a Wild Scot) with a tale of peril and treachery. Isabail Grant is certain that Aiden MacCurren is responsible for her brother's murder. Aiden was framed for stealing a valuable necklace, and he thinks Isabail knows who the real thieves are. He takes her prisoner and the battle of wills begins. Though Aiden views Isabail as his enemy, he reluctantly begins to admire not only her beauty, but her kindness toward others and her ability to captivate him. The magnetic attraction between Aiden and Isabail is intense and sensual, culminating in sizzling love scenes. Keats's ability to recreate medieval Scotland adds authenticity to this novel, which is rich with multi-dimensional characters and an engaging story.
