Loosely based on the bloody rivalry between the MacLeods of Dunvegan and the MacDonalds of Sleat, Margaret Mallory has woven an exciting romance set in the early 1500s of Scotland. Her hero, Duncan, has proven his worth in battle with an aim to win his childhood sweetheart, Moira. Unfortunately, life moves on and not happily. She has been married off to Sean, a violent and abusive man who terrorizes her and her son. Worse yet, from her son’s perspective, he threatens to kill the child’s beloved Irish wolfhound. Fearing for her life, and that of the boy, she flees her husband with Duncan’s help. But trusting any man, after what she’s been through, seems impossible now. The road to love will not be an easy one. Romance fans with a longing for Scottish warriors will devour this appealing mix of fantasy populated by strong men in kilts from proud Highland clans.
