First in a sultry new series set in the wilds of the Scotland Highlands
Annabel’s future was decided by her parents at an early age; she was to be sent to Elstow Abbey and prepare to become a nun, a bride of God. She had accepted her life at the abbey; little did she know that an unexpected visitor would change everything she has ever known. Her family has not visited her since they dropped her off at the abbey fourteen years ago. Annabel is confused by her mother’s sudden visit, and what her mother reveals only adds to the confusion—she will no longer take the veil. Instead she’ll be returning to Waverly Castle and taking on a new role as the wife of Scottish laird, Ross McKay—intended to be her sister Kate’s husband. The rugged, sexy Ross was to marry Kate, in honor of a contract forged between the two families’ years ago. When Kate runs away with a lover, more shame is looming over the family name; Annabel is their only hope. Annabel knows nothing about being a wife, running a castle—or the marriage bed. However, consumed by new, unfamiliar feelings for her handsome husband, she desperately wants to learn. She is not the bride he expected, but Ross is completely taken with his shy, curvaceous, and sweet bride. He is delighted when he realizes that she’s not a stereotypical, snobbish English lass and begins to deeply love and cherish Annabel. A series of suspiciously coincidental encounters with a strange man follow Annabel. And when her life is threatened, Ross is determined to keep his precious wife safe. As the danger increases, he vows to move the Highlands itself to save her and preserve the passion that’s only beginning to bloom. But who could be aiming to hurt Annabel? She’s spent most of her life in an abbey, hardly having communication with anyone. Could she possibly have any enemies? Or, are the adversaries that were once determined steal Ross’ place as leader of the McKay Clan (after his father’s death) still be seeking revenge?
