Ainslee MacDonald is a fierce lass, and not one to shrink from danger. Jeopardy has a way of finding her and it does when the Saxons invade the Scottish Highlands. Meeting hardship after challenging hardship her indomitable spirit flourishes when she meets her soul friend, her Anam Cara.
Conall Geirson is no mere man, he is the beast who comes to Ainslee's aid, bonding their fates. His tribe are hidden, more myth and legend than known to be real, but Ainslee's knows they're real, for Conall's love is so visceral that she forsakes tradition to vow her life to him.
Their path is perilous, devoted, heartbreaking and beautiful. Lairds, soldiers, priests, and crones may derail their perfect union, but the one thing no human counted on was her sons being forged of their mother's mettle, or that love transcends human perception.
This is an epic journey which tugs so hard on the heartstrings they break.
