Betrayed and abandoned by the man she loved, Mari faces judgment by a tribunal of her people demanding she name the father of her unborn child, or be exiled from her beloved home and family. Sick and trembling, she knows that she must refuse. And yet, if she does so, a cruel fate awaits her.

Beginning with The Dreamer, May McGoldrick’s Highland Treasure Trilogy captures the lives and loves of three Scottish sisters.
The Percy sisters each hold a clue to their family’s treasure–and the key to the hearts of three Highland warriors…
When her late father was branded a traitor to the king, Catherine Percy found sanctuary in Scotland. But a case of mistaken identity put her in a compromising position with the Highland earl sworn to protect her. Marriage to him saved her reputation, but nothing could save her from the passion that bent her body to his will…and shattered his last defense.
About The Dreamer...
"AN ABSOLUTE TREASURE! I absolutely love this book. I just finished reading it for the second time; although I can’t say why I didn’t review it the first time around. In any event, this book is amazing. The plot and cast of characters are dynamic, and the story that unfolds compelling." - Online Reader Review
