    In 1513 the death of King James IV has led to chaos and clan skirmishes throughout Scotland. Ian Cameron of Glencoe arrives at a convent claiming to have been sent by the father of resident Moira Maclean. Ian informs the Mother Superior and Moira that her father lies near death and wants her to marry him immediately. Stunned, she reluctantly agrees and they wed and consummate their vows. Not long afterward, her father arrives only for Moira to learn that she married the leader of her clan's greatest enemy.

    Ian feels this marriage will insure the peace, yet he deserts his bride. Moira wants to forget how she has become a pawn of clan politics and return to her serene life. However, she now carries Ian's heir. Ian comes back for his wife not only because he fears an assassin seeking trouble between the clans will kill her, but also because he realizes he loves his gentle spouse. Now he must find a way to gain her trust first.

    Once Scottish historical romance fans leap past that Machiavellian-like Ian is in love based on one quick night, they will enjoy this well-written tale. The story line is filled with action and counteraction as the clans' leaders and the assassin battle for supremacy between each other. The lead couple is a delightful duo and the secondary characters provide strength to the plot. Readers will enjoy Donna Fletcher's latest historical ISLE OF LIES once the plot shifts into gear.
