After Scotland’s three most powerful clans come together to build a formidable alliance, an apprehensive king conspires to keep his empire from collapsing. He orders Taliesan McHugh to agree to a marriage that will ensure the king maintains control of the coveted McHugh fortress. With no other choice but to obey her king, Taliesan accepts her destiny.

He is determined to make the gentle beauty his but finds himself at the mercy of a decades-old family agreement. As power struggles echo across the Highlands, Brodie continues to defy the king and vows to remain true to his cause, his people—and, most of all, the woman who has claimed his heart.
