The Highlander’s Wild Flame

Younger brother to the new Chief of Clan MacLeod, Rory MacLeod wrestles with his anger over being left to rot in Henry VIII’s prison after the Battle of Solway Moss, a hostage in place of his father. With the help of three other Highlanders, Rory escapes, and the four return to their individual clans on the Isle of Skye. They were once enemies, but now they’ve formed a Brotherhood. They all agree that to make Scotland strong, the clans must come together in peace. Rory trusts the Brotherhood more than his own family.

When Rory returns home in time for his brother’s wedding, he and his brother barely escape the chapel where they’re trapped inside while it’s set ablaze. His brother’s bride, the Macdonald Clan chief’s daughter, is the one to show them the way out of the burning building. Is she just trying to gain their trust, or does she really despise her father’s plans?

Daughter of the stubbornly warlike Chief Macdonald, Sara knows she must marry to form an alliance with the MacLeods. But tricking her bride-groom and locking him in the church to burn with his family is downright evil. Her groom is left too injured to lead his clan, and Rory takes over. He starts by capturing Sara.

Rory’s been betrayed on every front. Sara has nowhere to go since she betrayed her father by saving his enemy. The only time they fully trust each other is when they shuck their family roles and their clothes as the inferno growing within them burns all their inhibitions to ash.

*When her father traps her groom and his family inside a burning chapel on her wedding day, Sara Macdonald becomes a rescuer, a traitor, a reluctant bride, a prisoner, and The Flame of Dunscaith all on the same day. It was not the wedding of her dreams.*
