In a time of great strife between Scotland and England, when loyalties are tested, Clare Stuart is held hostage by English General Monck while her rebel brother, Connor, is sniping at the British. During her imprisonment she hones her fighting skills, hoping to escape and join her brother.

Graham Grant is a warrior with no room for love in his life; he fights for Scotland alone. When he agrees to accompany his brother-in-law Robert Campbell, Earl of Argyll, a Royalist Scotsman, his life changes. After saving Claire from renegade British soldiers, they accompany each other to locate
her brother. Though Claire fights her attraction for Graham, it's a losing battle. He's a man of honor who respects her sharp tongue and rapier wit. Yet, even after she's reunited with Connor, Graham must negotiate a truce and see Parliament reconvened to finally earn Claire's love. (Forever, Aug., 330 pp., $6.99)
