In 15th century Scotland Clarissa of York is sent to be the king's mistress and produce an heir. She is a bastard of the English King, her royal blood is highly coveted, and she has never needed a miracle more. But the brusque Highland laird who kidnaps her is a bit too rough to be considered divine intervention.
With rival lairds determined to steal Clarrisa from him and royal henchmen searching for her all over the Highlands, Laird Broen MacNicols has a mess on his hands.
Though he stole Clarissa for political reasons, there's a magnetic attraction between them, and his betrothal to another is just one of the things standing in their way.
But even an independentminded lady like Clarissa knows that a Highlander always claims his prize...
A romantic tale of the Scottish highlands, readers of Lora Leigh, Connie Brockway and Amanda Scott will be hoping for their own Scottish Laird.

Plenty of historical detail peppers a complicated romance plot intertwining England’s Wars of the Roses and Scotland’s monarchical crisis of 1487. Inept King James III of Scotland, conniving with the hated English, intends to face his young son on the field of battle. Clarrisa, illegitimate daughter of England’s Edward IV, is sent by her family as a reluctant potential bride for King James. Highlander laird Broen MacNicols kidnaps her both to get revenge for his father’s death and to prevent a union that could destroy Scotland. One gripping plot twist follows another: dastardly English trickery, complex Scottish alliances, and kilt-tossing, sheet-incinerating lovemaking. Whether the chilly Highlands ever harbored such a clutch of oversexed lairds or the House of York ever spawned such an independent bundle of “warm tingles” and “carnal ideas” as Clarrisa hardly matters amid the torrent of unleashed desires.
