The Highlander & the Queen’s Sacrifice

About the Book

Next in line to be the chief of the Gordon Clan, Kerr Gordon, is tasked by Mary Queen of Scots to bring a gift to her cousin and jailor, Queen Elizabeth of England. When he arrives at Whitehall Palace to find a courtly woman tied up in the stables, he acts to save her, only to be rebuked by the lady for dispatching the assassin before she could hear his confession.

The queen calls Maggie Darby her sacrificial lamb, because she has the job of trying on all of Elizabeth’s gowns and accessories before the queen wears them, just in case they’re poisoned. Raised by a chemist, Maggie has no intention of dying in the line of duty and has learned all about poisons and how to test for them.

When the handsome Highland warrior, who saved her in the stables, is accused of treason, Maggie’s instincts tell her that he’s been framed. And her heart tells her that she must do something to save him from The Tower of London. As they work together to find the true assassins in Queen Elizabeth’s court, the smoldering fire that’s been growing between them erupts into an inferno that threatens to change their worlds forever.
