Laird Lochlan MacAllister has never had an adventure, until his brother's plaid is returned to the family and he vows to find his sibling. As his search begins, Lochlan rescues Catarina from attackers. The illegitimate daughter of King Phillip of France, Catarina is fleeing her father's men. Throwing her lot in with Lochlan is better than being married off to further her father's political ambitions.
Their journey takes them through the countryside to tournaments, villages and castles, always one step ahead of her father and an enemy. Along the way, their trust in one another grows to love. As they get closer to the truth, they must find a way to be together forever. (Avon, Dec., 384 pp., $6.99)
