Author(s): 

Scott, known and respected for her Scottish tales, has once again written a gripping romance that seamlessly interweaves history, a complex plot and strong characters with deep emotions and a high degree of sensuality. The mix of political intrigue and romance makes for a highly satisfying page-turner you won’t be able to put down.

Picked by the king to fight at the Battle of Perth, Sir Finlagh Cameron had sworn an oath not to harm noncombatants of the opposing clan. However, as his father lay dying Fin vowed vengeance against Clan Mackintosh. Lady Catriona Mackintosh, aka Wildcat, finds Fin unconscious on their land, her devotion to her family forgotten as she attempts to save his life. As she tends his wounds she is excited by his touch — quite a shock to a woman who never intends to wed. He is invited to stay with her family while he recovers, since he has a message for her grandfather. Fin and Cat are quickly falling in love even though Fin is torn by his loyalties to king and family. The political machinations and Fin’s attempts to protect Cat result in a surprising climax.
