In the Highlands of Scotland, danger and desire can be found anywhere - but finding them may lead to something much more perilous and passionate than anyone can handle.
Lady-in-waiting Caitrina de Montfort is in a terrible bind. With her sister held captive by a henchman of Edward Longshanks, she has been forced to spy on the dowager queen of Scotland. But the resourceful young noblewoman has a plan to set her sister free - until the arrival of a charming but steely-eyed courtier ruins everything.
Bran MacLean has made his living by his wits for most of his life. After stealing a valuable treasure, he evades pursuit by donning a disguise and joining the queen's retinue. All goes well until the lovely Caitrina pilfers his loot and demands his aid in rescuing her sister. But their enemy is ruthless - and they soon find themselves facing a desperate choice between love and survival.

When you go through the trials and tribulations of these good stories and get to the end where the hero and heroine finally overcome all, only to have the author rush through in just a few minutes without the telling of the full story of their riding off into the sunset leaves you feeling left out of the best part of the story.
