1540, Scotland

A storm is brewing on the Highlands...

When headstrong and stubborn Gavin MacKenzie is driven to seek vengeance after the murder of his father, he seeks help from the King of Scotland. But things are amiss as he begins his journey across the fierce and unforgiving Highlands. And when he crosses paths with a crimson-haired young woman just as tempered as the Scottish Highlands, passions are quickly set ablaze. He fears she has already stolen his heart.

A secret two decades old could unravel everything...

Elyn Douglas doesn't feel like she belongs in the small village of Dornie, lingering right outside the walls of Eilean Donan Castle. After the assassination of Laird Angus MacKenzie, she's thrust into a world of violence and highlanders, but when she meets the rugged and powerful Gavin, she doesn't know what to expect. All she knows is that when he looks at her, her heart melts a little bit of the frost that has plagued her whole life...

As chilling rain and howling wind pelt the Highlands, Elyn fights the racing of her heart that begs for her Highlander's Embrace...

There are Scottish surnames appart from MacKenzie, it turns up in every single story
Eilean Donald, it's a castle near the Isle of Skye, if I have the right one. Beautiful full place with wonderful history. And a great start to a story with the birth of a child.

I feel like it was Kenna, if that was who helped the birth process.

;) Like it! The dialogue is believable, and you have an excellent storyline going.
