Overview

In 1304, amidst Scotland's continuing war for independence.

two wounded souls are forced on a journey neither wants, resulting in tragedy and disaster.

Battle-hardened, untrusting and son of a Scottish Chieftain.

Duncan MacThomas wants only to see his country free from English rule. Honor-bound to ensure his clan's financial future, Duncan reluctantly travels to England to wed a woman he doesn't want.

Wealthy and pampered.

Catherine Gillingham anticipates a marriage to a Duke's son and is dismayed when her king decrees she must wed a Scotsman, the sort of man all of London despises. Can these two opposites find love amidst war and lower their barriers to find the peace they seek within their countries and themselves?

The Best Reviews - Marilyn Rondeau
Against the sweeping backdrop of Scotland's war of independence, this author continues an epic of a heart wrenching and positively beautiful love story. Duncan and Catherine were painstakingly developed with such realism that you'll be sharing their emotional journey. At its very heart you'll share the love, the joy, the anguish, and the tears. Along the way, you'll revisit old friends, gain new ones, and thoroughly wish the story would never end. Burroughs gifts you with a terrific story.
In the Library Reviews - Joyce Handzo
Leanne Burroughs continues the fiery tale of Scotland's history with Highlander Duncan MacThomas and his lady wife, Catherine Gillingham of England. They were forced to wed by King Edward's decree and for the purpose of binding Scottish nobles to the throne by marriage. Readers will sigh, sob and squeal with delight whenever these characters are on the page! Every woman will want Her Highland Rogue!
Affaire de Coeur - Deborah Elliott
This is a highly emotional book set at the time of Robert the Bruce. The well-drawn characters are too proud to bend to their emotions, putting their relationship constantly at risk, notwithstanding the outside threat. The author is to be applauded for her choice of setting and strength of character studies.

Read an Excerpt

Duncan's impulse was to go after her, pull her into his arms and tell her he was sorry. Pride stopped him. She was leaving him.

He heard shouts. Going to the door, he opened it to assess the commotion.

Catherine rode out the gate. Bloody hell, his stubborn wife rode out unaccompanied. Racing like the Bansidhe howled at her back.

He'd driven her away with his heartless words. Why hadn't he just demanded she not leave?

He couldn't let her depart. Not like this--not ever.

Knowing he needed her more than life itself, Duncan raced outside to mount his steed. His response anticipated, a horse was already being saddled.

He raced after her, pushing his horse to full gallop. "Please, God, let her not injure herself," he cried aloud.

He finally saw her, pushed to overtake her, knowing the fool woman wouldn't stop. Drawing abreast, he shouted to her.

She barely spared him a glance, concentrated on riding.

She was going too fast.

Duncan feared the horse would stumble. She might lose her grip on the reins or saddle. Bracing his knees to maintain his balance, he reached over to grab her reins. She jerked them away. Not wanting to startle the horse, Duncan took only the space of a heartbeat to make a decision. Bending to loop his arm around her waist, he pulled hard, jerking her from her horse.

Catherine shrieked.

Trying to situate her on the horse with his left arm, he yanked on the reins with his right. She flailed, trying to escape him.

"Let me go," she shouted.

He brought the horse to a stop, dismounted, bringing her with him.

She pummeled her hands against his chest. He didn't stop her. He'd hurt her, deservedit.

Her knee buckled and she dropped to the ground, sobbing. "How dare you ... how could you ... how...?"

"Shhh, my heart, I am sorry. I did not mean--"
