Arriving in the Scottish Highlands after escaping heartbreak, and with a threat on her life, Englishwoman Athena Trappes ends up in the arms of a strong Highlander who tempts her like no other.
A fierce Englishwoman on the run
A Highland Laird who needs a proper wife
And a desire neither can resist
Athena Trappes thinks she’s in love…until she discovers the scoundrel only wanted her as his bit on the side. Enraged, she does what any spirited Englishwoman would do: set fire to his belongings, incur his dangerous wrath, and flee—immediately. With nowhere else to turn, she seeks freedom in the wilds of Scotland.
Highland Laird Symon Grant lost his wife years ago, and it’s his duty to find another. Athena is not exactly what the clan has in mind for him, but Symon’s heart burns with unexpected passion for the woman who would risk everything to be free.
