New York Times bestselling author Bertrice Small continues the sensual and romantic Border Chronicles, with 'a rollicking . . . heavy-breathing romp [that] reaffirms her standing as a historical romance stalwart.'*
The raging border wars have left Dugald Kerr, the laird of Brae Aisir, with one remaining heir: his beautiful, headstrong granddaughter, Maggie. Aware of the covetous interest in his land, the laird announces that any man who can outrun, outride, and outfight the independent young firebrand will have her as a wife along with her inheritance. His proposition causes more chaos than resolution, for feisty Maggie's reputation precedes her-until King James sends his cousin Fingal Stewart to compete.
The heated contest of wills between Fin and Maggie brings out the fire in the both-and inspires wrath in a jealous enemy who will stop at nothing to gain control of Maggie's inheritance. Even if it means getting rid of Fingal Stewart and his border vixen.
