Gillian wanted to kill Ross MacKenna. She would have succeeded had her father not dragged her from the battlefield. She hated the Laird of the MacKenna clan because that was what she’d always been taught and she allowed it to simmer within her. Her father did not feel the same. After losing a second son to the feud he was now ready for peace. He refused to lose anymore of his sons in the useless battle. Yet, he was willing to sacrifice his daughter for their sakes. He went to the MacKenna with a proposition.
Ross was tired of the century long feud between the two clans. MacKenna’s had won Ravenscraig from the MacKay clan and ever since there had been no peace. When Laird MacKay approached him with a plan, Ross was prepared to listen. The Laird wanted to offer his daughter, the fierce hellion who’d attacked Ross on the field, in marriage to unite the clans and disperse with the fighting. Ross wasn’t so sure he made the right decision when he agreed. For now he would have to watch his back off the battlefield, too, because he wouldn’t put it past the high-spirited beauty to seize an opportunity to kill him. One thing for certain, life with Gillian would never be boring. Her passionate nature promised to keep Ross occupied both in and out of the bedchamber. Her courage earned his respect but whether or not he could learn to trust her was yet to be seen.
Their beginning was challenging enough, but then outside forces threatened to destroy what conciliation Ross and Gillian had attained in their tremulous relationship. Now that she had learned to see beyond what she’d always been taught, Gillian prayed it was not too late to save her marriage from the dangers lurking among them.
