Desperate to save her diminished clan, Alainna MacLaren, heiress to a vast Highland property, seeks a warrior to protect her people—but he must agree to marry her and take her clan’s surname.
When the king sends a foreign knight to wed Alainna and gain control of her lands, Sebastien le Bret vows to lend his sword but not his heart—nor will he sacrifice his name and honor. Yet he is powerfully attracted to Alainna—a stone carver of mystical talent—whose pride and passion more than match his own.
But a local legend predicts disaster as time grows short—unless the warrior and the maiden can conquer stubborn pride and give in to the power of love.
