- Book 3 of Hot Highlands Romance
Scotland, 1455. As a child, Highlander Malcolm Maclean has visions he cannot explain. When he predicts a major victory in battle for King James the Second, he is summoned to Edinburgh castle to officially meet the king and predict his future. Much to his dismay, the king rewards him with Douglas lands and a future Douglas bride, a Lowlander!
Scotland, 1468. Malcolm Maclean is now a man—a leader and a battle-seasoned warrior. He has put off taking a bride he doesn't want long enough. Not wishing to draw royal ire, he must honor a dead king's wishes and marry Sorcha Douglas, a woman he's never met.
Because her father and older brothers were killed by the royal Scottish army at Arkinholm, Sorcha is not keen about being forced to marry by the king's royal order. She decides to play a dangerous game. She will switch places with her maid, who will impersonate her and, acting as Lady Douglas, exhibit the most atrocious and vulgar manners possible in an attempt to drive the Highlander away.
Malcolm, immediately intrigued by the spirited, outspoken maid, is not pleased when he finds out Sorcha, and an entire clan, tried to deceive him. When her deception is discovered, Sorcha is forced to go through with the marriage. Having begun their relationship with lies, she must earn the warrior's trust as she finds herself developing powerful feelings for him.
Their fantastic adventures beneath a dark highland sky and their struggles against common Scottish and English enemies will ultimately land them at the royal Edinburgh court, where this time, Malcolm's gift of Sight will put him in perilous danger. The Seer and the Seductress will need to believe in magic as they face their greatest challenge yet—a king bent on burning Malcolm at the stake for his misunderstood gift.
