In 1432, Graeme Campbell, THE LAIRD OF STONEHAVEN, returns from fighting alongside Joan, the Maid of Orleans, to his Scottish home. He plans to marry Blair MacArthur, rumored to be a fairy woman and the current focus of the MacArthur Prophesy. His cousin tells him he is mad to marry the witch, but Graeme knows he must honor the last wish of the lass' dying father that he marry her. He also does not believe in witchcraft or prophesies as he feels Blair is simply a healer.

Blair knows of the Prophesy as well, which states that the fairy woman will face trials from the elements and cannot fall in love with the wrong man. An arranged marriage seems an ideal way to save herself especially since the groom loved Joan so she agrees to wed Graeme with no plan to ever love him. As they become acquainted the impossible occurs and they fall in love especially when Graeme realizes the danger to Blair mirrors what occurred to Joan.
