Isobel MacLean fears she can't protect those she loves. Due to a violent attack in her past, she'll do anything to keep them safe--except marry the infuriating Grant MacDonald, heir to the MacDonald laird. She wants justice for her family, not a damn husband. Unfortunately, we don't always get what we want...

Forced to wed the lass responsible for his friend's death, Grant MacDonald is determined to tame his hellion wife. On a mission to Edinburgh to prevent war, sparks fly as they spar with each other, and Grant is starting to wonder if maybe his wife is a wee bit misunderstood.

He'll need to use every tool in his arsenal to distract his alluring wife from her quest for vengeance...before it's too late for them both.


Isobel MacLean has been fighting with the Royalist resistance,  but now someone has seen her identity.  That makes her a risk for her clan,  so her father decided that marrying her off into a really strong clan is the only way to keep her safe.  Isobel's idea is just to kill the man who saw her face.  That will keep everyone safe.  That's all that matters to her. As she sees it, it's her job to protect everyone she loves. 
Grant MacDonald is furious when he sees the woman he has to marry.  She's the one who caused his uncle to be killed by interfering in a battle.  He was expecting a ladylike bride not a hardhearted warrior. 
The sparks fly between our characters from the start.  Neither one is going to give in to softer emotions. It's great fun following them through their tangled journey,  and finding out the reasons behind the behavior. These are difficult times for the people of Scotland trying to stay out of the troubles the civil war has imposed on England.
I loved it. 



Winner of the National Readers’ Choice Award and Holt Medallion for Best First Book and Best Historical, Lori Ann Bailey has a romantic soul and believes the best in everyone. Sappy commercials and proud mommy moments make her cry. She sobs uncontrollably and feels emotionally drained when reading sad books, so she started reading romance for the Happily Ever Afters. She was hooked. Then, the characters and scenes that ran around in her head as she attempted to sleep at night begged to be let out. Looking back now, her favorite class in high school was the one where a professor pulled a desk to the center of the room and told her to write two paragraphs about it and the college English class taught by a red-headed Birkenstock wearing girl, not much older than she, who introduced her to Jack Kerouac. After working in business and years as a stay-at-home mom she has found something in addition to her family to be passionate about, her books. She lives in Northern Virginia with her real life hero, four kids that keep her on her toes, two dogs determined to destroy her house and two cats secretly plotting the demise of those dogs.
