    She believes men are not honorable nor are they kind-until she meets one that changes her heart forever.

    Betrayed by lies told before her birth, Aishlinn is raised by a harsh and cruel stepfather. Her life is forever changed one horrifying night when she is forced to flee England for the safety of the Scottish Highlands. Rescued by a fierce band of highland warriors, Aishlinn soon learns that honorable men do exist.

    She finds a strength she never knew she possessed and it will be tested to the limits when she is forced to make a heart-wrenching decision…allow the English to kill those she loves, or surrender for the crime she committed.

    She is everything he never knew he wanted in a woman…

    As a fierce highland warrior, Duncan McEwan has survived numerous battles, bed countless women, and survived a horrific storm at sea. He has scaled mountains and even survived hand-to-claw battle with a cat-o’mountain.

    But none of that could have prepared him for how his life forever changed one fateful spring day when he rescued a lass from a freezing stream. He will do anything to keep her as his own and will risk everything to keep her out of the hands of the English.

    Review by Debbie:

    I am a lover of historical fiction, but this one was outside what I usually listen to . . . so happy that I bought it! The narration is perfect; the tale of young Aishlinn whose mother died when she was five tugs at your heart from the beginning. I learned a lot about the Scottish clans and the brutality of the English upper class.

    The story of Laiden and Aishlinn’s heritage and their family in the Scottish Highlands was compelling. The romance was true romance, not graphic sex. And I really appreciated that. It made the book absolutely beautiful, just as it should be.

    Yet the appetites, coarseness and humor of the Scottish countrymen and women are not left out . . . that’s what makes this such a splendid book . . . You will grow to absolutely love the Scottish highlanders.
