When rescue comes from an unexpected Highlander, Emelie must decide whether she’s finally found the right man to trust. Can Emelie believe an offer that seems too good to be true? Are her instincts right this time?
He trusted the wrong woman…
Dominic Campbell, Laird Brodie Campbell’s younger brother, is still reeling from the humiliation and shame his dead wife left in her wake.

Can love bloom from this marriage of convenience?

But when the very source of Emelie’s troubles decides he will not let another man raise his child, the couple discovers to what lengths their nemesis will go to ensure Emelie never tells her secret to another person. Can their burgeoning love survive the looming scandal? Is their trust strong enough to protect them?
