In the wintery Highland mountains, Aileen and Niall unleash their forbidden passion. But Aileen is promised to another this Christmas, and the wicked Lowlander will stop at nothing to have her.

Aileen Munro doesn't want another cruel husband. But just as the laird of the Mackenzies pledges her to a man much worse than the last, her old friend Niall MacRae bursts back into her life. Niall is a full-fledged Highland warrior now, and his quiet strength sparks a burning desire within her.

Niall has come to accompany Aileen to her brother's castle, where her holiday betrothal will secure an alliance between the bordering clans. Niall has always had strong feelings for Aileen, but to touch her will be a betrayal of the oath of fealty he has made to his laird.

Torn between loyalty, duty, honor and love, Aileen and Niall have denied their forbidden attraction for too long. As soon as they unleash their passion, they are torn apart. But Aileen and Niall have only one wish this Christmas: to be together...even at risk to their honor...and their lives.

This is a very well developed story. It is very well researched on the historical component. The development of characters, especially noble born Aileen and the peasant-born Niall was very well tended to. It's a great story lie filled with sexual tension and other forms of suspense.

I bought this book not even thinking straight. I must have done this prior to readding it in the boxed set- A Naughty little Christmas. Its still a GREAT big 5.0 no matter what. I really LOVE this author's writting! Everything, & I mean everything in her writtings flow soooo gracefully its just mind boggleing in a good sence!

YOU WILL FEEL NAUGHTY READING THIS!!! Wow, this is an amazing Novella - about 134 pages, packed full with hot, descriptive, passionate sex. Also, surprisingly a unique storyline. I am not going to repeat the author's take on this story, just know the road is bumpy for our H/h. There is suspense, a surprise that I didn't see coming, and a HEA, with no cliffhanger's. (ljb)

I love Highlander books but the constant attempt to write with a Scottish accent gets tedious. This story was OK, not a lot of Christmas to it
