Description

When passion flares between two enemies from fighting clans...the Highlands ignite!

Two hotheaded Highlanders, the offspring of feuding lairds, are tricked by the King's Regent into a desperate choice: marry or die. Bhaic MacPherson is more disposed to lead his clan into battle than stay married to the daughter of his enemy. But perhaps the intensity of his feelings has more to do with desire than hostility.

Ailis Robertson wanted a husband, not a savage—but when her family was faced with a deadly ultimatum, she had no choice. How can she fight her fate when the union of a MacPherson and a Robertson could end three generations of hostilities between the two families? Perhaps bitter rivals can become something more when they start to recognize that they're not so different after all...

"It's breathtaking."

It surely was. The moon was full and looked like a glowing ball across the lake. All of the stars were in view, but without the harshness of biting wind.

"Aye, a truly stunning sight."

Bhaic wasn't looking at the view. He was watching her. She turned her face toward his, drawn to the husky promise in his voice...

        December 14, 2015
        Two enemies unite in marriage to prevent more bloodshed in Wine’s first Highland Spitfire novel, set in late 16th-century Scotland. The Robertsons and the MacPhersons have been at odds for years. Finally, Ailis Robertson accedes to the wishes of the Earl of Morton and marries Bhaic MacPherson. Despite the bad blood between their families, Bhaic and Ailis are undeniably attracted to each other. When pride keeps them apart and Ailis moves back in with her father, Bhaic swoops in and takes her to his home as his bride. But the residents of MacPherson Castle are not friendly toward a former Robertson, and they constantly challenge Ailis’s authority as lady of the house. Ailis is an admirable protagonist whose desire to exercise her independence is at odds with the submissive role required of many women in her time period. She insists that Bhaic woo her until she willingly consummates their marriage, adding sensual tension to the story. Wine’s attention to historical detail breathes life into this captivating tale.
