In this first installment, the clan has gathered for May Day festivities, and Laird Campbell is trying to arrange marriages for his younger sisters. Practical Elyne Campbell is pleased to marry whomever her brother has chosen for her. Unfortunately, she is more attracted to Tavish Grant, the cousin of her intended, than the prospective groom himself. When she is caught outside the castle gates during a siege and is forced to spend time hiding with Grant, the attraction grows beyond all hope of practicality.

Duncan Maxwell, laird of Lochmorton Castle, gets the shock of his life when he discovers the reiver captured in a raid on his lands is not a boy, but a young woman. Although she flatly refuses to tell him her name or how she came to be riding with a raiding party, Duncan cannot countenance imprisoning a woman in his dungeon but neither can he release her without compensation. Unable to ransom her back to her family, he treats her as an honored—though exceptionally well-supervised—guest. He takes to calling her Reva and determines to seduce the truth of her identity from her. There’s just one problem—the reiver may steal his heart before he can reveal her secrets.

His duty to his family brought them together, but can he soothe her fears in time to save them both?

Siobhán Maclachlan knew the traditions. She knew that her handsome husband and his equally-handsome cousin--both proud and strong lairds of their estates around Lachlan Bay--went to battle together for a specific purpose. But Colin was unbeatable, and she knew he’d always come back to her.

John Maclachlan had always admired his cousin’s choice of a wife; Siobhán was beautiful, smart, and loyal. When he is forced to take the body of her husband to her door, he hates seeing the stark fear and pain that settles inside her. So he stays, to help her pull herself together and protect her in the process.

It’s a dangerous time in the Highlands, and safety is hard to come by. Siobhan feels afraid and broken—unless John is around, that is. His rugged masculinity is something she can’t help but notice, in a way she never did with her husband.

Grief and guilt can only keep them apart for so long until all of Siobhan’s carefully erected ideas of safety and security are blown to pieces in one night. Now, she must decide if she can forgive herself in time to let him in before it’s too late for them both.

Sir Murdo MacKrannan is happily betrothed to the Lady Lexine when his clanswoman Katie turns up at the castle to claim her inheritance. But Katie's father was a traitor, and his legacy is long gone. The only fair solution is the ancient Tradition of the Gift Barter. The clan will give Katie the farm tenancy and all the livestock and chattels – if she gives the clan a Gift Barter Bairn, sired by the chieftain.

The siring trysts should be strictly business, but Murdo's betrothed is none so sure of that... and neither is Murdo when the delicious Katie wrenches far more from him than he ever expected to give... 

Laird Niall MacIan needs Lady Katherine Ruthven’s dowry to relieve his clan’s crushing debt but he has no intention of giving her his heart in the bargain.

Niall MacIan, a Highland laird, desperately needs funds to save his impoverished clan. Lady Katherine Ruthven, a lowland heiress, is rumored to be “unmarriageable” and her uncle hopes to be granted her title and lands when the king sends her to a convent. King David II anxious to strengthen his alliances sees a solution that will give Ruthven the title he wants, and MacIan the money he needs. Laird MacIan will receive Lady Katherine’s hand along with her substantial dowry and her uncle will receive her lands and title.

Lady Katherine must forfeit everything in exchange for a husband who does not want to be married and believes all women to be self-centered and deceitful. Can the lovely and gentle Katherine mend his heart and build a life with him or will he allow the treachery of others to destroy them?

Angeline Fortin explores the world of the MacKintosh clan in this much-requested prequel to her Questions for a Highlander series. 

Captain Richard MacKintosh returned from Egypt wounded, not only in body but also in spirit, after making a daring getaway from the rebel band that held him and his military unit captive for months. However, though he had escaped, his brother, Vincent; friend, Jason; and the rest of his unit had been retaken. Forced back to England to recover, Richard is determined to use that time to force the government to garner their forces to search all of Egypt if necessary for his brothers-at arms still lost in the desert. 

He wanted – no, needed! – to spend each waking moment finding the help he needed and nothing was going to make him lose focus on that goal. That was until he ran into an angelic face from his past. One Lady Abygail Merrill. Abby had once been a brash, bossy tomboy who trailed along after him as a child. He had treated her as a friend, as yet another younger brother, but the lovely sophisticated woman he found in her place stirred anything but brotherly feelings. 

Richard finds in Abby a welcome haven against the storm of disappointment raging around him. A sympathetic ear and a comforting embrace. It becomes too easy to lose himself in her welcoming arms. 

But like him, Abby has her own demons to overcome before she can be free to love him. An accident years before had left her scarred, her natural self-confidence lost to the scornful eyes and words of the ton. She is but a shadow of the impetuous lass she’d been. 

However, Richard’s return has roused in Abby possibilities she thought long dead. All the hopes and fantasies that she’d held for most of her life are suddenly alive once more with promise. Richard genuine admiration recalls Abby to the girl she was once was and guides her back to the woman she was meant to be. Abby would do anything for the man she has long loved and knows that if she wants a life of her dreams with Richard, she must first help free him from the past. 

But once he is free to love her, will there be a future left for them to share?

Vin MacKintosh was alive. 

The news dealt Moira MacKenzie the greatest shock of her life. There should have been joy. Rejoicing. Moira should have been thrilled to have the man she’d loved her entire life back, but after five years of mourning, Moira had forgotten one important detail. 

She might have loved Vin, but Vin had never loved her back. 

Moira had finally chosen to move on with her life and seek a husband and a life of her own when Vin reappeared. Though nothing but a one-sided love in the past, Moira’s friends convince her to give the love of a lifetime one last chance. To give Vin the opportunity to see her as a woman he could love. 

Vin is a man tormented by the past and, with little hope that her dreams of true love will be fulfilled, Moira instead offers Vin the friendship he so desperately needs as he integrates himself back into a normal life. 

After years as a prisoner of war, Vin MacKintosh returns with a scarred and battered soul. Plagued by guilt and nightmares from his years of torture and torment as a prisoner of war, he must readapt to a world where everyone he knew is a different person and the world a vastly different place. 

With everyone he knows pointing out how much he has changed, Vin cannot help but turn to the one person who gives him encouragement and motivation to move on, Moira MacKenzie. As his best friend, Jason MacKenzie’s, younger sister. Vin has known Moira her entire life, her letters during the war provided him comfort and understanding. True friendship. Now that he is back, he needs those things more than ever. 

However, Vin finds he cannot continue to look at Moira merely as a friend and little sister any longer. He cannot help but see her as a woman…and one too desirable to resist. 

Torn between this new attraction and the guilt he’s been carrying with him for years, Vin fights his attraction to Moira thinking that lust could do nothing but ruin the friendship he needs even more than the truth of her brother’s death might. 

What will Vin do when he realizes that what he feels for Moira is more than merely a question of lust?

I wrote this novella because readers wanted to know more about Faelan's past and the mysterious events that propelled him from the 19th to the 21st century. I admit, I wanted to know more as well, so I traveled back into the past. I saw the Mighty Faelan as a small boy, growing up in a clan whose destiny was to protect humanity from demons.

And in the end, I discovered that his past was even more compelling than I had imagined. I invite you to come along and experience Faelan's journey with me.
