A Scottish heiress courts seventeenth-century royal intrigue in the New York Times–bestselling author’s “page-turning historical romance” (Publishers Weekly).
With his father dead and his mother in France, Patrick Leslie, Duke of Glenkirk, discovers the obligations of the estate and its people are his alone. But a chance meeting ensures that he will not be alone much longer: To obtain the deserted castle and adjoining lands, Patrick must take something else, as well—a bride.
Flanna Brodie, heiress to Brae, is as wild as the Scottish countryside. But the passions Patrick awakens in the independent beauty run deeper than those of the flesh. She’s determined to champion the royal Stuarts’ cause, and restore Charles II to his throne despite her new husband’s objections. Patrick knows the dangers of such political intrigues—that the Stuarts have always brought misfortune to his family, and that a roguish king will ask far more of the naïve duchess than a simple vow of fealty. Now Patrick and Flanna must choose between the threat of wounded pride and the promise of a lasting love.
“[Bertrice] Small . . . weaves a rich tapestry of seventeenth century English politics through a passionate love story that is guaranteed to enthrall the reader.” —Historical Novel Society
