Chief Torrin MacLeod vows to possess and wed the spirited lady who stole his heart the previous winter. But Lady Jessie MacKay wants naught to do with the dangerous warrior, no matter how devilishly handsome and charming he is. When Torrin arrives unexpectedly at Jessie's home, along with Gregor MacBain, a man Jessie was formerly handfasted to, she is thrown off-kilter. She never wanted to see either man again, but now they are vying for her hand. Torrin promises to protect her from the devious MacBain, but how can she trust Torrin when she has witnessed how lethal he is?
The more time Torrin spends with the strong and independent Jessie, the more determined he is to win her heart. Once she allows him a kiss, he feels her passion flame as hot as his own. After she knows Torrin better, Jessie finds herself falling for the fearsome Highlander. But the odds are stacked against them. The sinister MacBain is bent on kidnapping Jessie, making her his bride and killing Torrin, while Jessie's conniving younger brother, Haldane, is determined to use Jessie to take over the castle in his older brother's absence. Jessie fears she can never be with the man she loves, while Torrin will do everything in his power to ensure they are together forever. In his heart, she is the only lady for him.

5 out of 5 stars, Top Pick, Night Owl Reviews: "It is sweeping story of survival, love and betrayal. Ms. Sinclair pens fantastic historical romance. Stunning settings are richly described and her characters are real and believable....The plot is filled with suspense, romance and passion. My favorite parts of this story are simply when Torrin and Jessie are talking. The dialogue is so well written. This is where we learn just who these people are and why they are so well matched. I freely admit that I'm biased in my opinion of this series - I love it. However, that fact makes my expectations very high for each new story. Ms. Sinclair doesn't disappoint. Her Highlander books are consistently fascinating, fast-paced and filled with passionate characters." Emma, Reviewer"The entire series has been wonderful, but I think this latest may be my favorite. Such a strong, intelligent, and beautiful heroine, and an incredible hero. Torrin was the most romantic hero that I could imagine." Monica, Reader
