An enchanting tale of love set in medieval Scotland by the New York Times–bestselling author of Border Lord and Border Bride.
Upon his release from his seven-year imprisonment in the Tower of London, the Highland chieftain Drummond Macqueen thinks of only one thing—revenge. But when he seeks out the treacherous bride who betrayed him, he instead finds a woman who is more like a stranger. Both lovely and defiant, it seems his deceitful wife has drastically—and inexplicably—changed.
Seven years ago, Johanna took her dying sister’s place to raise her infant son, even if it meant sacrificing her own happiness. But when her sister’s husband Drummond—thought to be executed—shows up alive, Johanna’s precious independence is threatened.
Soon Drummond’s bitterness gives way to passion, and Johanna’s soul-deep longing erupts. But when enemies of the past come back to settle old scores, the blossoming love may be crushed before it even has a chance to bloom.
