Training men to be ruthless soldiers is a skill at which Highlander Teàrlach MacGregor excels. He can kill three men with nothing but a sword and a couple of daggers. After he rescues a ward of the king, the beautiful Lady Madeline Crawford, the fierce warrior begins to yearn for a cottage of his own in the Highlands, with the sweet, delicate Madeline as the mother of his bairns.

Madeline begins to see a side of Teàrlach that nobody else has witnessed. The strong silent Highlander takes her to her first fair, teaches her to read, and bestows upon her a passionate kiss—her very first. But Madeline is informed that she is betrothed to another with the blessing of the king, making her and Teàrlach’s love forbidden.

Teàrlach, the famed fighter, vows to make Madeline his even if that means bringing down her corrupt warden, and Madeline knows that she must defy the king if she hopes to claim her Highlander.


Since her father's imprisonment Madeline Crawford has been under the guardianship of the King until he finds her a suitable husband.  He sends money to High Sheriff Moreville to look after her. The Sheriff has his own agenda and is slowly putting things in place as he wants them. 
Tearlach MacGregor  once worked for Madeline's father. Now he is on his way to work for her temporary guardian.  What he discovers when he finds her, angers him on her behalf.  He will do his best to improve her lot until her marriage. 
Our heroine has hidden her true personality for years through fear.  It's time to face up to the world. 
Our humble hero is a fearsome warrior who suffers with an excess of honour.  It could cost him everything. 
A very enjoyable and emotional read.
