Summary

"Pulls on your heartstrings, only to tear them apart." 
I never fit the mould of an abused woman. I had a great family life. Parents that loved me. A brother and sister that stuck with me through thick and thin. Amazing friends. A confidence that was envied by my peers. 
Then he came along. 
Handsome. Chivalrous. Perfect. 
Then he wasn't any of those things. 
I was strong enough to walk away. To hide. But then he'd find me. 
He'd always find me. 
It became a game of hide-and-seek. Every time I'd find a different place, but I could never stay hidden. Walls were too transparent. People were too transparent. 
I cut my hair. I dyed it. I changed my name… I tried to become invisible to everyone around me. Instead, I became the new girl. A person of interest. Someone hiding their past. 
I knew he would come for me again…just like every other time. 
The last time he attacked me, I had finally had enough. I wouldn't let him rule me anymore. I finally stood up to him. I showed him I wasn't the coward he married. 
That was the night when my life changed. 
That was the night when everything went dark.

    Bound by promise, torn by betrayal.
    Matched to a child from an enemy clan, Dhu Micheil, the Black Laird of Clan Gunn, has no intention of settling down with his promised bride—nor any woman, for that matter. Consumed with lust for revenge against Clan MacKay for the unforgivable pain wrought upon his younger sister, Micheil’s plans for his promised bride may be, by far, the cruelest fate to fall upon her.
    Seana nic Mackay, torn from her family without knowing why, has lived the life of a hostage in the territory of Clan Gunn since she was a child. Locked away in an abbey, waiting for a man who would not have her, Seana longs for but a taste of freedom, cursing the name of the man that will forever keep it just out of her reach: Micheil.
    But when Seana, free for a single day to attend a fair, crosses paths unknowingly with the man sworn to be her ruin, neither can resist the other’s pull. Micheil steals her first kiss. Seana steals his heart. 
    Can Micheil go through with the plans he swore to his father and clan he’d put into motion? Or will Seana be a casualty of a war she had no say in?

But the safecracker and her former clients are closely linked in their respective criminal enterprises, something they want no one to discover, certainly not Patricia or her fellow lawyer and housemate, Jack Alexander. There’s a string of dead and maimed to prove it.
