Moyra Elliott had retreated to her childhood home, the once-glorious Castle Wyndehaghen, to mourn the death of her father; when a wounded stranger appeared at her gates. Though she wished only to be alone with her memories, she could not turn her back on William Armstrong, who was fleeing for his life from the infamous raider Red Douglas, and whom she last saw as a child at the coronation of Mary, Queen of Scots.
Injured and hiding in Wyndehagen's secret tunnels, William was astonished to find his salvation in the platinum-haired nymph he remembered from so long ago. And yet, as soon as he was able to travel, he left -- determined to forget Moyra and bury the passion that raged between them. But as his enemy, Red Douglas, raced toward Wyndehaghen with murder in his eye, William returned, vowing to save Moyra, repay a debt . . . and claim the headstrong beauty he was born to love.
Set against the feral wilderness of late 16th century Scotland, here is the tumultuous adventure of a man and a woman who discover a love woven, once and forever, into the fabric of their destiny.
