An Englishwoman, a Scottish laird ... a love that will surpass all borders. A sumptuous romance in the spirit of Diana Gabaldon and Darry Fraser.
1402, the Anglo-Scottish border. An outcast in her own home for as long as she can remember, Lynelle Fenwick will do anything to earn her father's approval. Including exaggerating her healing skills and setting off alone to rescue her stepbrother from a band of raiding Scots.
Living under a curse that has haunted the Closeburn clan for years, Laird William Kirkpatrick is desperate to save his sole surviving brother. He may not believe in curses, but his clan does, and the growing number of graves seems to support their superstition. Having banished all healers from the clan for trickery, he has no choice but to allow the Englishwoman who claims to be a skilled healer into his home, and into the room of his wounded brother.
Enemies by birth and circumstance, they can only succeed together. But blood runs deep, and tensions high ...
