About the Book
A woman with a legacy…
A man with a secret…
She seeks to avenge her brave mother’s murder. He seeks to reconcile himself to his father’s death.
Josselin Ancrum, a sword-wielding Scottish war-orphan-turned-spy for Queen Mary, has her eye on Drew MacAdam. She suspects the golfing “Highlander” isn’t quite who he claims to be. While she serves up secret messages in the guise of a tavern wench, he seems to be courting the enemy English…when he isn’t beating the Scots at their own game.
Drawn together by fate, Drew and Jossy are swept up in their growing desires and the designs of their warring queens, until they uncover the terrible secret that binds their star-crossed souls.

“If ye didn’t come for the thimble, then ye must have come to see me,” Drew said with a grin.
“Look, Highlander,” she bit out, punctuating her words with jabs of the tankard. “I’m runnin’ a beer wagon. I didn’t come for that. And I certainly didn’t come for ye. Just because we shared a kiss or two—”
“Three,” Drew corrected.
“Ye shared three kisses?” one of the crowd asked.
“In some parts o’ the Highlands,” another onlooker said, “a kiss is as good as a betrothal, and three kisses—”
“Can ye not mind your own affairs? This isn’t the Highlands, and I’m not his damned betrothed. Aye, I kissed him thrice. But I’ll bloody well ne’er do it again.”
There was a long silence, and Josselin lifted her chin.
Then someone from the back of the crowd said, “Five shillin’s says he gets a fourth kiss…”
