In a land of warriors playing a deadly game, she refuses to become a pawn.

Moira Fraser has been given an ultimatum-marry the elderly Laird Achaius Morris, or risk another deadly clan war. She vows to do the right thing, as long as she can steer clear of the devilish charms of one stubborn Highlander.

Gahn Sutherland knows there's a dangerous plot behind Moira Fraser's wedding, and will stop at nothing to foil it.

But where a hot-headed, fiery Highland lass is involved, trust and honor clash with forbidden attraction, threatening to throw the Highlands into an all-out war.

A romantic tale of the Scottish highlands, readers of Lora Leigh, Connie Brockway and Amanda Scott will love this tale of intrigue, loyalty, and forbidden love.

One

Dunrobin Castle, Sutherland, early spring 1489


"Bari Fraser is up to no good," Gahan Sutherland insisted.

His father, Lytge Sutherland, peered at him through narrowed eyes. He was gripping the stem of a silver goblet, turning it slowly as he pondered.

"Now that the snow is melting, Bari will be on the move," Gahan added. He spoke softly, not wanting to sound impatient, although he was.

"That might be so," the earl said, "but you cannae convict a man before he acts. Thinking a thing does nae make a man guilty."

"His sister tried to kill ye," Norris interrupted from where he sat on the other side of his father. "I agree with Gahan-Bari Fraser will use the spring to try and cause trouble."

Gahan locked stares with his brother. Norris was his opposite, with blond hair and green eyes. He kept his chin scraped clean and stood over six feet. Gahan's own hair was dark as midnight and his eyes even blacker. They shared a father, though Gahan's mother hadn't had the blessing of the Church. Gahan was a few inches taller than his sibling, and more than one old woman had been heard muttering it was God's way of making sure Lytge Sutherland knew his sins would not be hidden from the sight of the righteous.

Gahan had chuckled at their judgment. His father welcomed him as warmly as he had his legitimate son. That fact was his greatest gift, because it would have been less trouble for the earl to leave Gahan in the village, the way many a nobleman did with his bastards.

There was no hint of jealousy in his sibling's eyes, which was something Gahan treasured. It wasn't often that the legitimate son welcomed a bastard son at his father's table. Even if their sire invited his by-blow to join the family at the high table, the heir often made it clear that competition for their noble parent's good favor wasn't welcome. But the Sutherlands were strong because they were united. In this case, against the young Fraser laird.

"Father, it's imperative that we move our retainers closer to the border," Gahan continued.

"I agree," Norris said. "Even with the hawks to warn us, the snow melts later here than on Fraser land."

The mood in the great hall was subdued. Conversation wasn't flowing along the long trestle tables filling the large space in front of the dais where the high table sat. The Sutherland retainers were doing their best to listen in. The earl frowned and leaned forward to scowl at his clansmen. He thumped his goblet on the table and stood up. The young boy assigned to his cup leaned around him to snatch it up now that it was no longer in his laird's grasp. Gahan found himself watching the drinking vessel to make sure it wasn't unattended. His gut tightened, just a fraction, as he waited for the lad's fingers to close around the silver stem. One careless moment of inattention could-and nearly had-cost his father his life.
