IN THE HIGHLANDER'S BED
Maxwell tempers her lively sense of humor with tender poignancy in a captive/captor tale of wild adventures and undying passion. Fans will easily relate to her three-dimensional characters and become totally involved in this fast-paced, masterfully crafted romance.
Raised in the American wilderness, Constance fears nothing, certainly not a Scot who's ruining her plan to return to America. Her attempts to escape infuriate and intrigue Gordan, and she's fascinated by his devotion to the fight for freedom. But he tempts her in other ways -- right into his bed. With the fate of his clan and his sister's well-being at stake, he can't lose sight of his mission, yet Constance is determined to find a way for her outlaw warrior to win his battle and her.
