Terrified of being sent off to marry a man who would only control her, Saeran Sinclair disguises her identity by posing as a male. Instead of being the beauty that she really is, she must help her sister gain “The Lion” of the Highlands favor, even though the feat seems impossible, for every word and look coming from him shows just how feral the man really is.
A deadly Highlander shouldn’t be forced to marry—but that’s exactly what’s happening to Kane “The Lion” Shaw. With a new squire, a leper of a lady living in his keep, and his neighboring highlanders beginning to stir with unease, Kane has a lot on his plate. But a Highlander never surrenders…and ignores the odd feelings his squire stirs inside of him.
When Saeran, posing as a squire, is forced to be around “The Lion”, the roughest, meanest, most barbarian man she’s ever met, she is sure her ruse is hanging by a thread. When he begins to suspect what she really is, she makes the most dangerous decision…and finds that this Highlanders touch makes it harder and harder to deny what is happening between them, even while danger wars around them.
