"exciting Scottish historical romantic suspense"
In 1330 in the Western isles off the Scottish coast, the
MacInnis clan hold Laird Donall MacLean prisoner because
they believe his brother Iain killed his wife Lileas,
sister to their clan leader, lady Isolde. While the
chieftains want revenge by killing Donall, Lady Isolde
knows her people cannot deal with the aftermath from the
much more powerful MacLean clan.
When Isolde meets Donall she asks him whether Iain
killed her sister. He says no, but he has some doubts as
he realizes his brother has quite a temper. To save her
clan, Isolde wants Donall to impregnate her so that the
child binds the two clans, but she wants no marriage
between them. She further explains to a chained Donall
that she will save his life if he agrees to an alliance of
convenience. To her chagrin, Isolde realizes that in spite
of drinking potions of non-attraction, she finds Donall

A Warrior In Chains, A Lady In Charge, And A Seduction
Too Hot To Handle!
As chieftain of the Clan MacInnes, Lady Isolde will do
anything to protect her people -- including sacrifice
herself to the enemy. Donall the Bold, laird of the hated
MacLeans, lies locked in her dungeon awaiting execution.
But rather than slay him, Isolde comes up with a daring
plan to forge a lasting peace between their clans.
Though Donall curses his beautiful captor, only a madman
would refuse to savor the pleasures beneath that
tantalizing aura of dignity and grace. But Isolde offers a
mere covenant ... and Donall craves nothing less than total
conquest. Vowing to steal her heart and take his freedom,
the renowned warrior instead will find himself in a
different kind of prison -- one made of sweet, decadent
passion, and one he may never wish to escape.
