 Lily’s well-honed sense for trouble tells her no healer is safe in London while gangs roam the city looking for witches to burn. In the dead of night, she escapes on a northbound ship, intending to return after Christmas celebrations calm the city’s witch fever. But when Lily lands in the wilds of Scotland, her skills for surviving in the city can’t save her.

Roderick MacDonald is on a secret mission for his chieftain when he finds a lass near death on a barren hillside and is forced to take her with him. Though this mysterious Sassenach may have The Gift his clan needs—and he burns with passion for her—he’s determined to resist the enchantment she weaves on his scarred heart.

When love blooms amidst the harsh winter beauty of the Highlands, will these two obstinate souls from different worlds accept the Yuletide gift?

About the author

 Margaret Mallory is the award-winning author of the Scottish historical romance series, THE RETURN OF THE HIGHLANDERS, and the medieval trilogy, ALL THE KING'S MEN. Her books have won numerous honors, including RT Book Reviews' Best Scotland-Set Historical Romance Award, a RITA© nomination, the National Readers' Choice Award, and two Maggies. CAPTURED BY A LAIRD is the first book in her new Scottish Historical series, THE DOUGLAS LEGACY. Margaret abandoned her career as a lawyer to become a romance novelist when she realized she'd rather have thrilling adventures with handsome Highland warriors than write briefs and memos. Margaret lives with her husband in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, which looks a lot like parts of the Scottish Highlands. Now that her children are off on their own adventures, she spends most of her time writing, but she also loves to read, watch movies, hike, and travel. Readers can find information on all of Margaret’s books, as well as photos of Scotland, historical tidbits, and links to follow her on Facebook and Twitter on her website, www.MargaretMallory.com.
