Ordinarily, Lady Fiona Ormiston wouldn't think of forming
an alliance with a Highlander, despite the protection he offers.
But now, by request of the king, Sir Adham MacFinlagh, a
brazen stranger and outsider unlike anyone she has met
before, is to be her husband. Torn from solitude and the
comfort of her family to make a home with the rugged knight,
Fiona surrenders to Adham's powerfully passionate--and shockingly
tender-touch, only to discover her new husband's family ties may lie
with an enemy of the king. A sense of duty may have brought Adham to
the marriage bed, but it's his powerful feelings for his beautiful, willful
wife that will be his undoing. Ultimately, the bold knight will have to
decide: Does his allegiance lie with his blood ties to the man who hopes
to bring down the king or with the bride who has stolen his heart?
