Early in sixteenth century Scotland, her husband Arran once tried to kill her brother, but failed. Now with Arran dead, Brianna Cameron feels free of his blight and wants to help villagers by teaching what she has learned from her wise sister-in-law. However, the coach she rides in topples off the road killing her two escorts and leaving Brianna badly battered.
Fierce warrior Royce is healing from recent battle wounds nearby when he stumbles across the accident. He takes Brianna to his cottage so she can begin healing under his nurturing. As they remain in close proximity while mending from their respective wounds, they fall in love, but someone from her past plans to kill her unless her beloved can keep her safe.
Fans of historical romance will gain much pleasure from this delightful tale of two individuals nurturing one another back to health following harrowing incidents. The lead protagonists are a charming duet who hooks the reader with caring gentle yet intrepid natures. With LOVE ME FOREVER and novels like ISLE OF LIES, Donna Fletcher is gaining a deserved reputation as one of the top authors of Scottish historical romances.
