Amid the Ancient Splendor of the Glens Brianna of the Clan MacQuarie cursed her defiant heart. The fire-haired beauty was promised in marriage as a peace token to the Campbells, her clan's hereditary enemies. Yet by the whispering shores of Loch na Keal, Brianna welcomed the burning kiss of a stranger -- none else but Ian, mighty arm of the Clan Campbell, her future husband's emissary.
Now, in Brianna's ravaged soul, honor challenged desire . . . and the white-hot hunger that seared her senses with Ian's name . . . Brianna dared the Campbell stronghold itself, to claim her destiny . . .
Instead she fell captive to a secret scheme, a twisted vengeance nursed in bitter hatred for nearly twenty years. Now Ian and Brianna would battle for their very lives, and for the clarion freedom of a love that would sing through the ages.
