A scandalous second-chance romance rife with passion, intrigue, and a life-altering secret.

Despondent from years of war, Keenan returns home to find his clan has been reduced not only in numbers from plague, but the family coffers are nearly depleted. Dedicated to restoring his clan pride, Keenan strikes a bargain with his brothers, they will each marry, but not for love, only for the generous dowries their future wives will bring.

Fionna has suffered the consequences of endless wars and plague, leaving her the unlikely laird of Clan Taylor. When her past love summons her to his keep under the threat of killing her clansmen he captured trying to steal horses, she has no choice but to meet him.

There she discovers a man much changed, heartless and bitter. Especially when he demands that Fionna help him get engaged to her best friend!

Unable to deny him, Fionna plays along, waiting for the right moment to strike, save her clansmen, and celebrate teaching Keenan the hardest lesson of his life.

But not everything is what it seems, and Keenan and Fionna discover that distance and time cannot change what their hearts truly want—each other. 


Keenan and his brothers have returned from war to find their clan, among others in the highlands has been devastated by sickness.  The only way to strengthen them back up is to marry to gain allies and money.  Old enemies could be the key to that happening.  The brothers all make a pact to do their part.
Fionna took over leadership of her clan when her father died.  It's not easy to provide for all those who need her.  
This is an exciting story of second chances and secrets.  Our characters have to put the welfare of their clans before anything else. There is a lot of danger about.  
Great fun.
