Dedric Hartley wants to make a new life in Scotland after years of service to King Edward I, but the English king insists on one last mission.

A Scottish lass in love with an English knight…
Isabella Dunbar has served Robert the Bruce’s court for eight years as a lady-in-waiting and a peace offering from her border laird father to a king he once challenged. When Isabella has two chance meetings with Dedric, they recognize an undeniable attraction that could place them both in danger. Questionable allegiances threaten to drive a wedge between the young couple as their lives take them back to the Scottish-English border and into the heart of a war for Scottish independence.
Will either side accept their union, or will a battle between two kings tear them apart?
Dedric Hartley and Isabella Dunbar must trust one another enough not only to make their relationship last but to stay alive when two kings try to tear them apart.
Welcome to Robert the Bruce’s Highland Court, where the ladies in waiting are a mixture of fire and ice. The Highland Ladies, the STEAMY spinoff series from Celeste Barclay’s The Clan Sinclair series, returns to the Medieval royal court for love and intrigue.
