THEY WERE BORN TO HATE EACH OTHER,
BUT DESTINED TO FORGE A DEFIANT LOVE ...
It was a time of revolution and chaos, of danger and deception . . . when Scotland teetered on the brink of civil war and lawlessness swept the borderlands. And in the midst of this magnificent struggle for power, two strangers born to be enemies discovered a passion as savage as the wild Scottish moors.
Jonet Maxwell - a fiery, green-eyed girl and a much sought after bride with a dowry of rich lands, she would become a pawn in a deadly game of vengeance and desire . . . and her heart would be ignited by the dashing spy who was her captor.
Alexander Hepburn - the Baron Durnham had a handsome face and a ruined name; his blood enemy was Robert Mure, Jonet's uncle. To exact an exquisite revenge, he would spirit away an innocent girl and hold her hostage, only to lose himself to the smoldering passion in her eyes.
He was sworn to clear his father's name. She was fighting to save her beloved uncles life. They were enemies in a battle of blood ties and birthright, allies in a dangerous truce.
