When she saves an injured man from drowning, Bethoc Matheson, the victim of an abusive father, finds an ally in Sir Callum MacMillan who is determined to be her protector while trying to find out who orchestrated the treacherous attack that led him into her irresistible arms.
The Murrays are back in this thrilling new tale from New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell…
Responsible for protecting her younger siblings from their abusive father, Bethoc Matheson is in no position to rescue another soul in Scotland. Yet when she sees a bleeding man on the verge of drowning, that’s exactly what she does, securing him safely in a cave where she can return day after day to tend to his wounds.
Sir Callum MacMillan can scarcely believe such a slight lass as Bethoc could save him from the grasp of death. But he knows the telltale marks of an angry fist on her skin, and he knows she has the soul of a fighter within her feminine frame. Raised to be a protector of the weak by his Murray clansman, Callum would prefer to be the one saving her—and save her, he will. If he can first survive the treacherous attack that led him into her irresistible arms . . .
