This was Lady Linet Dancourt’s only hope; she would not be forced into a marriage by her scheming brother as a means to further his already growing influence with King Edward. The defiant Scottish rebel who was imprisoned in her brother’s dungeon would be her means to escape, and in so doing Linet would also save the brave Earl of Grey’s life. Now the only thing standing in Linet’s way of freedom was convincing the dangerous wounded predator that paced his cell like a caged animal.
Seathan MacGruder, Earl of Grey cheated death many times, but it looked like his luck had finally run out. Ambushed by a traitor amongst his most trusted knights, Seathan was helpless watching his men die at the hands of Longshank’s puppet Fulke Dancourt, Viscount of Tearlach. Now Tearlach’s prisoner, and brutally tortured for information, Seathan held his honor in place. He would hang in a few hours.
When the beautiful English lass appeared, he skeptically listened to her plan for escape. How can Seathan trust this female, especially after his past experience with members of the opposite sex? But Seathan’s need to warn his brothers and their revered leader, William Wallace, of the conspirator who betrayed the rebels, Seathan would grant Lady Linet her boon, to be taken with him into the Highlands, and brought to the safety of her mother’s clan. On the run from a vengeful Tearlach and his knights, Linet and Seathan are hunted at every turn, and the only thing more dangerous then their being captured, is the growing desire that burns between them!
