 In the middle of war for control of a nation, romance blossoms…

Scotland, 404 CE. Elise MacInnes prizes duty above all else. The only child of her clan’s lord, the passionate young woman understands the importance of being promised to another clan’s heir to forge a strong alliance. But the fiery beauty never expected to lose her heart to a simple farmhand.

Calum Barran knows his life is meaningless. Taken in at a young age after his parents were killed in a savage war, the bereft farrier knows his love for the flame-haired heiress of the MacInnes Clan can never be. For if they were to act on their feelings, they would condemn themselves and ignite a terrible conflict.

Enraged by a law that forbids her from being true to her desires, Elise risks everything and spurns her betrothal. And while Calum rejoices at having the gorgeous noble in his arms, he fears their happiness will only hasten their demise.

Can this star-crossed couple escape the tyranny of custom and forge a loving future?

Read an excerpt:
My uncle, Calhoun MacInnes, took the island of Jura within the Grampian Mountains region. It was close to the bay of the Irish Sea and also close to the mainland of Scotland. My last uncle, Dillion MacInnes, took the island of Islay. It was not much far from Jura. My father and my uncles believed that if they both took control of the islands, they would be able to stop the flow of enemy ships from getting further into Scotland. With having only threats coming by land, they could better defend their area. It would also put them in a position of power with having such strong control over the bay of the Irish Sea. Due to the closeness of the islands to Ireland, more and more of our tribe and family came to Scotland and settled within the islands or with my father in the Kintyre Peninsula.
