Fate bound them together, but love will set them free.

With no chance of escape… 

When Patience Kincaide learns she’s being forced to wed for a third time, she’s desperate to compel her husband-to-be to stay away from her. Both her previous husbands were shockingly cruel, and she holds no hope this time will be different, especially since the man is known as the Savage Slayer. Her plan is simple: pretend she’s crazy. But what happens when the man she thinks she wed turns out to be hiding behind a facade cleverer than her own, one that conceals passion she didn’t believe possible and tenderness she never dreamed existed? What’s a lass to do when the very man she successfully drove away is the only one she’s ever wanted near? 

The best laid plans… 

A second son relegated to life in the shadows, Highlander Brodee Blackswell left home to serve as the enforcer for the King of Scots, longing to one day govern his own lands and castle. And now that Brodee has become a legendary warrior, the king grants him exactly that. But even rewards have a price. The castle comes with a broken, albeit beautiful, lass he must wed. Yet for a man with no desire to marry, a woman lost in her own world might just be the best possible option. Except Brodee quickly discovers who Patience truly is, and the complicated, caring lass is awakening parts of himself he’d rather leave dead.

May be their undoing… 

The potential of a dazzling future dangles just within reach for Brodee and Patience, but dangers they never conceived consume them, threatening their fragile, newfound trust. Their only hope of survival is to shed their meticulously crafted masks and relinquish the pain of the past to embrace the promise of healing, enduring love.

*If you love romantic, page-turning books set in the mysterious, rugged Medieval Highlands that are about honorable, alpha Scottish warriors and the brave heroines who capture their hearts, then this is the perfect novel for you!*


Brodee Blackswell has been rewarded lands and a title of his own from the King.  The only downside is he has to marry to claim it.  The likelihood of the woman feeling any better about it than him is low.  She is the widow of a man he killed for the King and daughter of a man who recently changed allegiance. 
Patience Kincade has now had two abusive husbands and her father has now written and told her she has to marry again.  She knows he is using her for his own purposes,  that's what he's always done.  The new man she's been promised to has a vicious reputation. 
Both our characters have troubled pasts,  that will take a lot of courage to get through.  It's expected that there will be trouble taking control of an enemy castle.  It difficult to know who can be trusted.  Danger can come from the most unlikely direction. 
A fascinating read with great characters.  It will keep you entertained from the first to last page. 
I loved it.
