KIDNAPPED BY A ROGUE

But Margaret refuses to ever wed again, and she’s desperate to escape.
Thanks to his roguish charm and skill with a sword, Finn Sinclair Gordon has managed to survive the treacherous waters between his parents' rival clans—until now.

They’ll risk their lives to save each other and prevent a bloody clan war—but will they risk their wounded hearts for love?
