A vengeful Scottish warrior holds a young English widow captive in this novel from the New York Times–bestselling author and “incredible storyteller” (Los Angeles Daily News) Like the rest of Scotland, Langley Castle is ravaged by both the deadly plague and the ongoing war between Robert the Bruce and England’s King Edward I. After her husband, Afton, Lord of Langley, succumbs to the black death, Igrainia flees, hoping to return to her native England. But Afton served the English king and held numerous hostages in the castle, including the wife and daughter of Scottish warrior Eric Graham. Before she can reach safety, Graham captures Igrainia. He forces her to return to Langley Castle, only to discover that his wife and daughter have already fallen victim to the plague. At first, Graham treats Igrainia as a mere political pawn, a pretty prize to dangle in front of King Edward. But when the English ruler refuses to trade Igrainia for the wife of Scotland’s ruler Robert the Bruce, Graham forces Igrainia to marry him. What Graham never expects is the desire his strong-willed bride stirs in his soul. And when Igrainia discovers the true heart of the fearsome knight, her life—and loyalties—will never be the same . . . New York Times–bestselling author Heather Graham whisks readers away to fourteenth-century Scotland for an adventure and love story they will never forget.
