Scotland 1684. Heather McCollum expertly combines her historical knowledge with romance and many surprises in this wonderful tale of two people who come together in an unexpected way. Englishwoman Evelyn Worthington is desperate to flee an arranged marriage and manages to talk her brother into letting her go to his castle in Scotland. She plans to make a school for ladies and be successful in earning money. She has three months or she will have to return and marry, but she is determined!!
When she arrives at the castle, she is met at the door by Grey Campbell, a Scottish Clan Chief claiming the castle is his. The English had already wrought destruction trying to kill his people and take over his land. Can you imagine how he felt when a Sassenach stood at his door claiming the castle was her brothers?
He was furious, but stubborn Evelyn marched right in and began making plans. When sees the plight of the people inside and how the place had been burned she is horrified. She realizes the castle should rightly go back to the Chief but she has to make a go of her school. As the two are around each other there is definitely an attraction.
Adventure, action and hidden secrets all make this story a page turning romance you will not want to miss. Who can resist a Scottish Highlander? A wonderful start to a new series!
