The Border Lord's Bride



New York Times bestselling author Bertrice Small continues her Border Chronicles with this tale of a woman rescued, a man enraptured, and a love unanticipated by the fates… Duncan Armstrong, laird of Duffdour, had sworn never to wed unless it was to a lass he truly loved. But when he needs a favor from King James, Duncan never expects what he’s forced to pay in return: the taking of a bride he neither loves nor desires. When Highland heiress Ellen MacArther’s marriage plans are thwarted by a murder attempt, she has no choice but to beg the king for help. The cost for her urgent plea: to surrender her heritage and become a border lord’s bride. But the price to be paid for two strangers thrown together by fate is higher than imagined. And more dangerous than the passion—and betrayal—that could consume them.
