At long last she was returning home
Isabel could hardly wait to see her beloved Scotland again. But when she arrived she found her family riddled with treachery, her father dying, a vicious heir seizing power, and her gentle brother Duncan outlawed and in hiding, accused of a foul crime.

Isabel knew she would have to choose between the bond of blood and the bond of love-but either way meant heartbreak!
