No lass is less suited for the convent than strong-willed Madeline Drummond. No man is a poorer candidate for penance than hot-tempered Iain MacLean. But Madeline is posing as a nun-long enough to take revenge on a murderous villain. And Iain is dutifully bringing a family relic to a holy shrine-as the price for his own reckless ways. When the fiery Highlander and the fearless lady meet, pretenses are shed like lovers' clothes and vows of chastity are scorched by a single kiss. Posing as husband and wife, the two firebrands join forces to reclaim Madeline's ancestral home. And she may soon wonder whether 'tis a blessing or a curse to be the one true love of the Master of the Highlands!
