Sailing the churning seas off the coast of Scotland, Moira was on a desperate mission to save her kidnapped cousin. On board was a mysterious and seemingly aged man -- a man Moira sensed was not who he claimed to be. Suddenly a fierce storm swept them both overboard, stranding them on the rocky shores of Scotland. With his crude disguise washed away, Moira discovered that the elderly stranger was actually a ruggedly handsome young man!
Moira was shocked... and frightened... to find herself at the mercy of the reckless stranger, especially when Tavig MacAlpin revealed the true reason for his disguise -- he was running from the gallows, accused of a crime he did not commit. But while Tavig's search for justice was far more treacherous than Moira ever imagined, his fiery touch released a passion within her she hadn't known existed.
For Moira, this was only the beginning of a strange but wondrous adventure, a journey across Scotland that would plunge them both into the flames of destiny... and into each other's arms.
