Enemies become lovers in a divided Scotland in this “marvelous tale” of history and passion (Diana Gabaldon).
 
From birth, Catriona Campbell and Alasdair Og MacDonald are enemies—for he is the second son of her clan’s most powerful foe. Yet from the moment they meet, they know they will lie in each other’s arms someday. Their love, though centuries forbidden, comes at the most dangerous of times, as they become pawns of war . . . and of history. For rebellion has been stirring, and under the orders of King William III, a bloody price will be paid at Glencoe . . .
 
This “stirring” love story set against the backdrop of a notorious massacre is “well worth a Highland journey” (Kirkus Reviews).
 
“Roberson’s world of 17th-century Scotland is atmospherically real.” —Publishers Weekly

About the author

Since 1984, Jennifer Roberson has published twenty solo novels, among them thirteen bestselling fantasy novels: the eight-volume Chronicles of the Cheysuli, about a race of shapechangers and a divine prophecy; and the four-volume Sword-Dancer saga, which she describes as "Conan the Barbarian meets Gloria Steinem." Other novels include three mainstream historicals from Kensington: Lady of the Forest, an award-winning reinterpretation of the Robin Hood story emphasizing Marian's role in how the legend came to be; a sequel, Lady of Sherwood, continuing the adventures of Robin and Marian; and Lady of the Glen, the documented story of seventeenth-century Scotland's Massacre of Glencoe, similar in theme to the films Rob Roy and Braveheart. She has also written The Golden Key, a DAW Books fantasy collaboration with Melanie Rawn and Kate Elliott, which was nominated for the World Fantasy Award in 1997.

Jennifer has a bachelor of science in journalism from Northern Arizona University, with an extended major in British history. She spent her final semester in England at the University of London, which enabled her to do in-depth research at museums, great homes, and cathedrals of England, as well as in Scotland's Edinburgh, Loch Ness, and Glencoe. Prior to becoming a full-time writer in 1985, she was employed as an investigative reporter for a morning daily and as an advertising copywriter for a major marketing company.

Jennifer grew up in Arizona and used to compete in amateur rodeos. Her primary hobby now is the breeding, training, and exhibition of Cardigan Welsh corgis and Labrador retrievers in the conformation, obedience, and agility rings of AKC dog shows and trials. She was the Cardigan Welsh corgi breed columnist for the AKC Gazette for six years and is currently on the board of directors of the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America. She lives near Phoenix with (currently) six dogs and two cats.
