A laird who fears making a mistake…
Ronan Mackinnon bears the weight of leading his clan and spares no time for his own pursuits. Summoned to court by King Robert the Bruce, Ronan diligently considers each of his words and actions to represent his clan with honor.

Can this reserved laird prove to Abigail what he lacks in experience he makes up for in passion?
A lady who’s made one mistake after another…
Lady Abigail MacLeod’s life is filled with poor choices. She misjudged her brother Kieran’s wallflower bride Maude when she arrived on the Isle of Lewis.

Now a lady-in-waiting at King Robert the Bruce’s royal court, Abigail finds the opportunity to redeem her past wrong deeds. But when a handsome laird arrives at court, Abigail fears her old habits haven’t died. Could a rushed judgement cost her a lifetime in a Highlander’s arms?

Will it take stealing the MacLeods of Skye’s famed Fairy Flag?
