When a Highland laird makes a promise, nothing can stand in his way...

No one ever accused Kerr Macalister of being a nice man. Everyone would agree, however, that when he makes up his mind about something, no one will change it. Which is why everyone knows Isobel MacKinnon will end up his wife.

Isobel spent most of her childhood in love with the tall, dark, and deadly sexy Scot. It wasn't until she was fifteen and failed to entice Kerr into kissing her, that things turned sour. Now, Kerr is the one trying to entice her.

But Isobel knows how to hold a grudge and won't be swayed unless he proves his love. So she tricks him into believing she's eloping with another man. Kerr responds by kidnapping her to a remote cabin in the Highlands where both love and danger lurk...

Will this Highlander's fate be to finally have the woman of his dreams?


Kerr Macalister made up his mind a few years ago that the sister of his friend and Foster brother will be his wife.  Unfortunately she has other ideas. There has been a lot of trouble for all the Foster brothers in recent years.  Now it seems to be coming to a head. Our hero is a true Highland warrior with a tragic past.  
Isobel MacKinnon is well known in her Clan for playing tricks and settling scores. Kerr humiliated her years ago and she hasn't finished with her revenge.  Our heroine is intelligent and is frustrated over not being allowed  to use her talents to help the Clan,  just because she's a girl. 
This is an action packed historical romance with lots of danger and laughs. We meet lots of great characters along the way.  Even the animals are special.  
This book is part of a series but easily read on it's own.  If like me you've missed some of the others, you will definitely want to go and buy them as well. 
Great fun.
