But Lyall doesn't have time to deal with one headstrong woman. He has a single, all-consuming goal: to win back his family lands lost when his father was declared a traitor. As they ride across the wild hills and valleys of Norman Scotland, a land filled with unexpected danger and treachery, they are swept into a forbidden love, one as dangerous as the enemies pursuing them.
