She believes all men are cruel and unjust, until she meets one who changes her mind forever. For him, she is everything he never knew he needed in a woman.
She was just a bairn when her mother died, leaving her to be raised in Northern England by her harsh step-father and his three sons. Aishlinn never told them she knew the truth; she was the daughter of a Highlander.
She had given up all hope of ever finding her real family, of ever having a family of her own, or of ever living a life beyond a meager existence. Until fate intervenes one horrifying night when she is forced to flee England for the Scottish Highlands. When she is rescued by a fierce band of Highland warriors, Aishlinn soon learns that kind and honorable men do exist. In the loving arms of their clan, she soon finds an inner strength she never knew she possessed.
That strength and determination will be tested to its very limits when she is forced to make the most difficult decision of her life; allow the English to kill those she has come to love or surrender for the crime she committed.
Duncan McEwan, battle hardened Highland warrior has never thought of anything beyond his next battle or the day he would become chief of Clan MacDougall. Until the day he rescued a severely beaten English lass from a bitterly cold English stream.
Torn between what he wants and what he believes he should never attempt to possess, he fights a long and hard-fought battle. No matter how hard he fights it, he cannot argue the fact that he loves her more than his next breath. He will do everything in his power to keep her safe and out of the hands of the English.
