A compassionate mercenary.
An independent Lady.
A long-buried truth...
Pirate mercenary Lochlan MacLean has always longed for his own lands to call home. When a debt-ridden father hires him for a task that challenges his moral code - kidnapping a woman, the spoils will materialize his dreams. Aye, a job he can't resist.
Strong-willed, independent Lady Isabel Willys has always been promised her abundant future is hers
to choose. She's blindsided when she finds out her father's promised her to a widowed Scottish laird under the guise of a peace treaty between their families.
Whilst journeying to visit family, Isabel's travel party is set upon by bandits, she thinks it's her betrothed too impatient to wait, but she soon finds out everything she's ever known is a lie and her and
her family's future is uncertain.
Will Isabel's fierce attraction to this mercenary prevent the promised peace for her family? Will Lochlan give up the one thing he's always wanted
for the one thing he never knew he needed?
